Prepare your child for the childcare experience
Prepare your child by explaining how enjoyable the experience at the childcare centre will be.
Emphasise that it will be fun to meet other children, make new friends, see a new place, play with new toys and learn new things.
To familiarize your child with the centre, arrange to bring him/her for one or two brief visits.
Should I accompany my child in the Centre?
It is advisable that you accompany your child for only a few days and not more than a week.
Once your child begins to interact with other children, leave and allow him/her to settle down on his/her own.
Your continued presence may make the adjustment difficult as your child would become dependent on you.
This is perfectly normal as children are placed in a new environment and often fear that their parents will not come back for them.
Reassure your child that you will pick her/him up after your work. Your child should become familiar with the daily routine.
How long does it take for my child to adjust?
The time frame for the adjustment varies for each child.
A great deal depends on your attitude as a parent.
If you are happy and confident about the arrangement, your child is more likely to settle down easily and faster.
What should I do if my child refuses to attend the centre, or has fears and nightmares about going there?
Be calm and direct with your child and talks about all the fun he/she will have.
Reassure your child that you will pick him/her up after your work.
If your child continues to be distressed, talk to the teacher and discuss ways to help your child to overcome his/her fears.
As far as possible, avoid changing childcare arrangements too frequently as this will be unsettling for your child
