Are you getting ready to take your child to a childcare centre in Cannington or any Perth suburb? Here are some tips for making that first month easier on your child.
In an earlier blog post this month, we provided tips on what to expect before taking your child to a childcare centre. We encouraged you to start gradually and to have a morning routine for your child. We have some more tips for when you start leaving your child for the day.
It’s important when you drop your child off to have a routine for saying goodbye. Make sure to let your child know when you are coming back to pick them up. This is important to them and goes a long way towards getting them through the day.
Communication with Staff
Make sure to communicate with our staff in front of your child. This has two wonderful effect. First of all, your child feels much more confident about being left with carers when they have seen you talking to them and smiling. In addition, your communication can give the carers important information about how to care for your child and any special needs they may have.
Congratulate Your Child for Achievements
When you begin taking your child to a child care center, you are asking your child to make new friends, meet new people and join a new group. These are big achievements for your child, whether you know it or not. Be sure to celebrate these achievements with your child because it will give them a newfound sense of both competence and confidence.
it is also a nice idea to have your child celebrate these achievements over the phone with relatives such as aunts, uncles and grandparents.
