Children settle into day care differently. We understand how distressing it can be for families to leave their children in care for the first time and we are aware of the anxieties and fears that families can have when starting care. Our educators are equipped with a number of strategies to assist in settling a child into care and are here to help you through the process. Children take their social cues from their parents, so the more confident you are, the more secure your child will feel in their new environment. Parents and staff are encouraged to communicate as much as is necessary at all times, but especially during this period.
