Dropping off your child at Day Care can make or break YOUR DAY and your child’s.
Keep it very simple and quick.
The longer you hang around the harder it is for your child to make the transition and begin their day.
In my home the parents and children enter, remove jackets and hang up, remove their shoes, a hug and kiss and they are on their way.
If you have something to discuss make it quick or call later in the day to discuss any issues you may have. It is hard to talk about your child when they are standing their listening. The longer you linger the harder it will be for your child to transition into his day.
The time to linger is “PICK UP TIME” when your child is excited to share their day with you.
Please leave your phone in the car or let it go to voice mail. Drop off time is just a few quick minutes and your child “NEEDS TO KNOW” they are the ‘MOST’ important thing at this time. Nothing else really matters during those few morning minutes.
I am sure it will make a difference in your day and your child’s, we all need to feel good after dropping off our child in the morning for day care. Starting your day with a smile on your child’s face is far better than your child in tears.
If you have gotten into bad habits in the morning it is never too late to change how you drop off your child. Begin today making this change with your child.
You will feel better going to work when your child’s day will begin with a great start.
Expect tears the first couple of times you begin this transition time but STICK TO IT!!!! In less than a week it will begin working and you will both be happy to begin your day.
Remember this benefits the other children and day care provider too….NO one wants TEARS to begin their day.
