In addition to its impact on daily and work lives, the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly affected education delivery. According to UNESCO, nearly 90% of the world's student population has had their learning experiences disrupted by precautions and policies implemented to overcome the spread of the disease. The project "Home, but not alone: Home, but not alone: Empowering preschool teachers and parents for digital education", a European funded project focused on the exchange of good practices to improve preschool education throughout Europe, will mitigate educational losses by supporting teachers and parents who are the main providers of education for young children. This work describes the actions made to analyse the influence of the pandemic on children and preschools.
