We suggest purchasing the following books you can read to your child prior to starting. ‘Preschool Day Hooray’ By Linda Leopold Strauss, ‘Maisy goes to Preschool’ by Lucy Cousins, ‘What to expect at Preschool’ by Heidi Murkoff and ‘I love you all day long’ by Francesca Rusackas.
Communication between home and the Service must be open and happen often to best support your child during this time. There may be tears and extra tight hugs when saying goodbye for the first few weeks but there are always cuddles, reassurance and genuine care from Educators for both the children and their families. Sometimes this experience is upsetting more so for the family, not the child. We understand this and offer support through phone calls during the day, photos and open communication.
