When your child starts going to daycare or to a new daycare, it is likely that they will need some time to adjust. Luckily, there are things that you can do to help your child adjust easier to this frightening situation.
For starters, you can begin by thinking back to your own feelings when you started school. This can help you to relate to what your child is feeling in a positive manner. You can also help ease your child into daycare by visiting the daycare in advance.
It is common for daycares to allow a visit before you begin taking your child, which is a great time to ask questions and for your child to get to know the facility. Try to get your child excited about daycare.
Finally, on the first few days that your child is attending daycare, make sure that you arrive early in order to give your child time to become comfortable with your leaving. By making them as comfortable as possible, you will be able to help them make the transition smoothly.
