If you are getting ready to take your child to a childcare centre in Vic Park or any Perth suburb, both you and your child may be a bit apprehensive. There is often a combination of excitement and fear of separation in both the child and the parent. Here are a few things to expect.
Before Your Child Goes to a Childcare Centre
You and your child maybe feeling a plethora of emotions before going to the child care centre. This is totally normal and is to be expected. Loss, anxiety, excitement and pride are all appropriate emotions leading up to the first day of child care.
Getting Your Child Ready for the Childcare Centre
One of the most important things you can do is visit the child care centre with your child a few times. This can help acclimate your child to the child care centre so it won’t be such a culture shock the first time you drop them off.
When you are at home, make sure to talk about the child care centre. ask your child if they remember things they saw at the centre like a set of blocks or some other toy. Look at some pictures of the child care centre with your child and talk about the fun things they can do there.
Drop your child off at the childcare centre for an hour or so the first day and see how it goes. We are happy to develop a plan for you to gradually ease your child into any Cuddles Childcare Centre, whether you are in Vic Park or any Perth suburb.
It is also helpful to start a morning routine with your child that includes dressing brushing teeth and eating breakfast that tells the child it will soon be time to go to the child care centre.
