TIPS FOR WHEN YOUR CHILD STARTS DAY­CARE

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Ex­pect tears – both theirs and yours. While some chil­dren set­tle into their new en­vi­ron­ment quickly, oth­ers will take a lit­tle longer, but it does get bet­ter

Start a good bye rou­tine – don’t just sneak off when they’re not look­ing, as this can make them more anx­ious

While it’s tempt­ing to dress your lit­tle one in their cutest clothes – a word of warn­ing – don’t! They will get dirty, sandy and cov­ered in paint. Also, la­bel every­thing – if you want it to come home again

Ex­pect your child to get sick – re­peat­edly. There’s also a high pos­si­bil­ity they’ll share many of their bugs with you. Ap­par­ently the first two years are the worst and then they’ll rarely get un­well
