#COVID-19: How to keep a regular school routine during the holiday

Schools are set to close on Wednesday 18 March with the holiday's starting earlier than expected.

This is part of government's efforts to contain the coronavirus.

Children are only set to return to school after the Easter holidays.

What can parents do to ensure that children stick to their normal routine and are attending to some school work?

Joanne Joseph spoke to human potential and parenting expert Nikki Bush to find out.

They need a balance between the on-screen and the off-screen time, so we really need to create some kind of structure for this lockdown time and that structured time is basically a schedule and that schedule needs to have different parts to it.

Nikki Bush, Human potential and parenting expert

Even if our kids are at home, they have a regular wake-up time and a regular bedtime. They need time to do any academic work if school is going to go online....

Nikki Bush, Human potential and parenting expert

Now that they are no longer doing sport and extramural activities they have massive chunk of time available in which to do things like chores. You have got extra time at your disposable, how are you going to maximise this time?

Nikki Bush, Human potential and parenting expert

What I would recommend parents do with their children is empty cupboards, toy boxes, see what games and toys you have. You are going to need these resources over this time.
