My son and duaghter will be leaving me for full time nursery soon. one is 3 the other nearly 2, how do I help the transition?
do settle in sessions at nursery 2 familiarise them and you
start to discuss it daily with them as an exciting and positive experience eg
You are a clever big boy/girl who will soon be going to nursery to play/meet new friends/you will enjoy yourself....etc
involve them as it comes up to due to go maybe select clothes to wear involve them in choice
look out fave blanket/toy/comforter for them to take familiar object
conceal any of your natural anxieties from them as they will probably pick it up
chat to other mums who use nursery, get support
prepare a written handover for staff of children preferences etc
send them in with fave and familir food/toy etc
my baby went at 6months Loves it i am happy too
its a positive step a transition for them and you
