The lockdown has compelled many mother and father in Punjab to get the names of their wards struck off from playschools. The proprietor of a kindergarten says one-fourth of the scholars have opted out. “Not all parents are averse to online learning. Many have been taking a keen interest in virtual classes and are helping their kids learn through video and text messages,” he claims.

But Shefali, whose four-year-old son was promoted to nursery this 12 months, calls the idea a farce. “Learning via cellphone, computer or tablet isn’t healthy at such a tender age. The job becomes harder if both parents are working,” she says.

Health specialists don’t advise on-line research for pre-nursery and nursery college students. They have obtained numerous instances of eye pressure as a consequence of extreme use of digital devices, they are saying. Prof NK Gosian, an schooling knowledgeable, says the idea of on-line courses is detrimental for the bodily and psychological well-being of scholars, particularly these in kindergarten. “Excess screen time can harm the brain too. Also, the coronavirus has deprived students of outdoor activities,” he maintains.
