Pack everything the night before
The first morning can be stressfull. We generally provide everything that your child might need during the day. We do ask that you bring a water bottle, some spare clothes and even a comforter. We recommend packing everything the night before. You may want to let your child pack their backpack with you to help build expectations for the following day.
When you arrive ask for the Centre Manager or the Room Leader. They are both there for you to greet you and help settle you in.
Typically you will first sign in, find your child’s locker and then put their bag away. One of our educators will assist you in getting your child to settle. Often this is done by introducing them to one or two friends or even showing them an exciting experience.
It is important that you ensure you say goodbye to your child when you leave and make sure that the teacher or educator in charge knows that you are leaving. We understand goodbyes can be hard for all involved however to continue building a safe and trusting relationship we strongly suggest that you say goodbye and not ‘slip away’ when your child is distracted. We encourage anyone who may want to check in on their child at anytime to phone the centre and we will provide an update on how your child is going
