Settling in your child

Coming to a new centre may be daunting for both parent and child.

We suggest you visit the centre with your child and stay with them for an hour or so before their first day.

On their first day it is a good idea to stay for 20 minutes or so and do some activities with your child rather than going immediately.

Your child may have a particular blanket or toy that is a favourite of theirs, it is suggested that you bring this to kindergarten with you.

Routinely say “Goodbye” to you child when leaving so they know you are leaving and can focus on the next activity.
