Explaining Covid to children

Kids Health New Zealand have put together some awesome resources to help us explain Covid 19 to our tamariki.

Sometimes keeping it simple is best, but some young children have such inquisitive minds they need to know more information before they can relax.

It’s up to you as a parent to decide how much information your child needs (or doesn’t) need to know – but the links on this website can provide you with guidance on how to tackle this tricky topic. You’ll find a Wiggles video in this link also, which keeps things light and fun but shares the important message of hand washing and social distancing.
