It’s been over three months, but today the teachers and children of OneSky’s Early Learning Center (ELC) in Da Nang, Vietnam return.
For the most part, masks hid smiles, but there was no doubting the excitement and relief of children, parents and teachers. When the preschool closed back in February the coronavirus (COVID-19) was still an emerging problem for the world. Now, after three weeks without a new case, Vietnam considers the diseases controlled.
“It’s been a long time,” said Vietnam Program Director, Hien Vo. “But we now have what we wished for; the children are healthy, the school is open again and we can all begin to look forward.”
“The ELC was set up specifically to help children whose parents work in the surrounding factory zone.
