Sending your kids to a childcare program can be tiring and upsetting for you as well as your kids. As a parent, you want your child to go happily but most of the time, this is not the case. Your little one might be extra particular and might not like to be with people who are not his parents.
Here are a few tips for parents for smooth and easy drop-off and pick-up at their childcare center:
Remember, when transitions get tough, touch your child gently giving him a feeling of security. Hold him close and tight with his head on your shoulder. Calm down your tone and speak softly and settle him down. Give enough attention to your child’s need, whether he wants to walk around with your or just a quick cuddle before you leave him. You are an expert when it comes to your child.
Every child is different and responds accordingly. It is important to be aware of their feelings and how they respond to different stimuli. If a child feels loved, appreciated and heard, they are more likely to adapt well. If you are looking for a great childcare program in the Albany area, look no further than TSL Adventures.
