Parents are encouraged to join their child at the centre for an orientation session at least one week before their first day. Orientation can be arranged before enrolment is made if requested. We encourage parents to allow their child to experience the service at Cuddles and see that they are happy in it before making a commitment.
Attending a childcare centre for the first time can often be an anxious experience for a child (as well as a parent), and an orientation session is an important part in the transitioning process to minimise any stress that may be involved.
You can schedule a session in advance with a Centre Manager. It is free of charge. During a child’s orientation, due to regulatory requirements, it is necessary for a parent to remain on our premises.
