Abstract

The purpose of this research was to determine the difficulties caused by the confinement due to the pandemic caused by COVID-19 in "initial 2" (preschool) students of the Cañar parish, Ecuador. The study involved students residing in this community, who by means of questionnaires to their representatives allowed to know first-hand the main difficulties during the confinement. For this purpose, a quantitative research approach with a descriptive scope was developed; the data were collected using a randomized method, which consisted of using a Google form to administer a survey in which it was possible to evidence, among other things, the inequality of conditions that affect educational effectiveness, especially the lack of adequate spaces for learning. In addition, variations in the academic routines of students, with a significant percentage lacking an established routine, suggesting deficiencies in the management of activities by teachers. Lack of interaction with peers and teachers affected motivation and enjoyment of learning. In addition, confinement had an impact on fine motor skills and the learning of letters and numbers, and the problems of access to virtual classes showed the need for improvements in the technological infrastructure.
