2020 has been a remarkable year and many parents, after months of home schooling, have renewed admiration for what a fantastic job teachers do. September’s return to school, albeit with different rules and processes than before, has mostly been welcomed by parents and children alike. 

​However, it seems we’re not out of the woods yet, and Coronavirus infection rates are on the rise, the threat of a second wave is ominous. So now, more than ever, parents will want to make sure their children are as physically and mentally healthy as they can be. An excellent immune system helps prevent illness and speeds recovery, building resilience helps combat stress and makes coping with challenges easier, and a safe haven at home makes it a secure and comforting place to be. This guide has been written to help parents make their children’s homelife the supportive infrastructure needed during these difficult times.
