Finches Not Going Into Nest With Hatchlings?

Four days ago my finches hatched 5 babies. They had a lot of nesting material built up blocking the entrance. A curious child removed the material 24 hours ago. The parents did cover the babies with a layer of material, but they have not gone back into the nest. They are sticking close and I do hear the babies, but have not seen an adult enter the nest. How long can the babies survive?

Not for very long. When the nest is disturbed, birds assume a predator has done it and become fearful of going back in.
This may be a harsh fact of life, but is something children must learn: Never, ever mess with a bird's nest.
