Don’t worry if you feel mixed emotions. The decision to place your child in someone else’s care is a big one, and the first day in a new environment is always a bit daunting for a child and his or her parents. But a bit of forward planning will make it easier for everyone.
On acceptance of a position at one of our centres, parents are encouraged to talk to staff about our individual child orientation process to meet the needs of your child. This is always an emotional and sometimes hard time for parents and children, but the rewards for putting in time to the orientation process are great, as your child will soon develop the confidence to separate from you easily and engage in the centre with excitement and a positive, relaxed attitude. Our centre staff will do everything possible to make you and your child’s early experience as warm and happy as possible.
