In line with Government advice, The Education People has developed a series of free webinars to help the Early Years and Childcare Sector operate safely and confidently during the Covid-19 pandemic. These webinars focus on the key areas of bereavement, risk assessment, a key person globe approach and children’s personal, social and emotional needs, all against the backdrop of Covid-19.


This 90 minute webinar took place on 29 May 2020 and was delivered by Becki Ferrari - Child Bereavement Specialist.

Young children have experienced significant changes in their lives during the Coronavirus pandemic and the world will undoubtedly look and feel different for them. For those who have also experienced the death of someone at this time, they may be starting to work out what death means, as well as being impacted by the grief in their family and home. For early years settings this can present challenges in how best to support young children. This webinar will help early years professionals develop confidence as they plan for children to return to their settings. It will look at how young children make sense of loss and death and what ideas and resources might support them.
