The study aims to help teachers develop a supplementary curriculum for kindergarten children in the Philippines who were affected by the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) period brought by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. The curriculum focuses on helping children make use of their time at home to experience meaningful learning with their family while understanding what is happening around them and why they need to follow a lot of rules individually, as a family, and as a community. The curriculum proposes the use of home-based learning anchored on Filipino cultural values of strong family relationship and on the philosophy of holistic learning.
