Abstract

The COVID-19 outbreak, which emerged in China towards the end of 2019 and spread to the whole world in a short time, affected many countries.While countries are struggling with coronavirus disease, they have started to be crushed under the socio-economic effects of both the health system and the epidemic. The health system of many countries has collapsed and has become inadequate for itself. This worldwide epidemic has hit hard on production, economy, trade, tourism, education and culture.The number of cases started to decrease as a result of the measures and restrictions taken during the pandemic process. After the epidemic, which was partially taken under control in line with the measures taken, the studies for transition to new normal started. Thus, the first steps have been taken to eliminate the social and economic side effects of the outbreak. Small child care may also be needed for working parents with the onset of a controlled new life. For this reason, it is planned to open preschool education institutions in a controlled manner.
