Abstract

The COVID-19 lockdowns played a major role in restricting growth of disease(1) and that saved many lives(2). However, COVID-19 lockdowns had some major drawbacks too. There was a significant impact on the economy (2) and it undoubtedly affected the development of infants and toddlers in multiple ways. This paper looks at the impact of the COVID-19 lockdown on infants and toddlers.

Key words: Covid-19, lockdowns, early childhood development, infants, toddlers
