with Venus Zaron
Maintaining 3-6 Environment in Masks
How can we give the best of ourselves to the children when they only see part of our face because we are wearing masks?
How can we come to truly know the children and their needs when they are wearing masks?
What does the partnership with parents look like in these new conditions?
