It’s now the moment to go back to work, the post-childbirth period caused it to be possible to pass some precious time as well as our child but… the resumption of work entails preparing the little one to detach from his or her first reference figure: us. As a result of many variables that could stimulate emotional stress, starting the day nursery the day nursery has that occurs gradually, respecting the child’s times.
In order to facilitate this method, it’s recommended to accomplish some work in advance, a few weeks before first date you could take some daily walks across the route that you will try reach the crèche. Children, if they are still little, when they’re seven to eight month, child care can recognise spaces around them. So, walking along that road is a way of making the little one acquainted with the route, giving an expression of serenity and confidence. We can show the little one something that could strike his or her imagination, for example, a fountain, a bell tower, a train or perhaps a tram passing in the surroundings. They’re small aspects that little boys and girls also pay attention to and help them identify a place with something nice and reassuring.
Every day, we can go further on, and physically show the little one 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 actual entry: a variable period of few days, during which the little one can come into contact and familiarize him- or herself with the environment, the games and educators. Each structure has its rules, which are communicated upon admission and which the little one are certain to get to know. Usually, the first day the little one will stay in the crèche only for one hour and, day after day, time can become longer and the absence of mom is likely to be “tested “.This is the most delicate moment and children’s reactions are different. Some become inured immediately, others need longer. For sure, showing our child that, during the first days, we’re not there for brief periods and then are back, can give the little one plenty of confidence.
Starting the day nursery tends to produce less problems than nursery school. Younger children can adapt themselves easier, if the child shows some serious difficulties of inclusion, consider, if necessary, the possibility of leaving the little one with a nanny or perhaps a grandparent until he or she’s ready.
