Due to how COVID-19 has closed schools around the World, it has left preschoolers separated from teachers and classmates. However, by using Zoom they can reach-out over the internet to see their teachers as well as other students and feel some normalcy in their lives.
How to Set-Up Zoom with Preschoolers

Setting up a Zoom account is quite easy. There are many walkthroughs focused on how to create an account if you’re a preschool teacher and then once you have a Zoom account it is simple to send a link to students upon creating a meeting (and parents can help preschool students enter into the meeting).
