The paper presents a survey that involved a sample of 178 parents of children attending the infant-toddler centers and preschools of the Municipalities of Bassa Romagna, in the Province of Ravenna (Emilia-Romagna, Italy), between December 2020 and January 2021. The survey had the following aims: to deepen the knowledge of parents’ opinions on various aspects of the impact of the pandemic on daily life and parental functions; to monitor any difficulties their children may have; to understand how much the actions taken, to adapt school attendance in the pandemic period, have met with family satisfaction and have positively pursued the educational alliance. Another objective of the research was to involve the professionals of these educational services in reflecting on the results (already returned with a research report and a training seminar) and to organize opportunities for reflection with the same parents who participated in the survey.
