It’s now the moment to return to work, the post-childbirth period caused it to be possible to pass some precious time together with our child but… the resumption of work entails preparing the child to detach from his or her first reference figure: us. As a result of many variables that can stimulate emotional stress, starting your day nursery your day nursery has to occur gradually, respecting the child’s times.
In order to facilitate this method, it is advisable to complete some work beforehand, a couple weeks before first date you can take some daily walks along the route you will take to reach the crèche. Children, if they are still little, when they’re seven to eight month, day nurseries can recognise spaces around them. So, walking along that road is just a way of making the child knowledgeable about the route, giving an expression of serenity and confidence. We can show the child something that can strike his or her imagination, for example, a fountain, a bell tower, a train or a tram passing in the surroundings. They are small aspects that little boys and girls also pay attention to and help them identify a spot with something nice and reassuring.
Everyday, we are able to go further on, and physically show the child the crèche building, describing to him or her the colours, windows, roof and finally cross the crèche threshold. Then, on the established day, there is the true entry: a variable amount of couple of days, during which the child will come into contact and familiarize him- or herself with the surroundings, the games and educators. Each structure has its rules, which are communicated upon admission and which the child can get to know. Usually, the very first day the child will remain in the crèche only for one hour and, day after day, time can be longer and the lack of mom will undoubtedly be “tested “.This is actually the most delicate moment and children’s reactions are different. Some become inured immediately, others need longer. For certain, showing our child that, during the very first days, we are not there for brief periods and then are back, can give the child plenty of confidence.
Starting your day nursery tends to produce less problems than nursery school. Youngsters can adapt themselves quicker, but if the child shows some serious difficulties of inclusion, consider, if necessary, the chance of leaving the child with a nanny or a grandparent until he or she is ready.
