​​​​​​First Day of School Blues


The first days can be an anxious time for some children (and some moms and dads, too)! They walk in a new room with new children, and new grownups, and new “stuff,” and maybe they get a little teary-eyed too. Your baby is growing up so fast. Well, its no wonder some children might suddenly cling to their parents and cry! Here are some tips for getting through the first few days: 

Try to act confident yourself. If you seem anxious and unsure, your child will pick up on that and start worrying too. 

Make sure to say goodbye when you leave. Trying to “sneak out” when your child is busy and not looking sometimes makes your child panic a few minutes later, and may make separation even more difficult the next day. 

If your child is having an especially hard time, we will give you a call on your cell or work phone. (Let us know which number is best to reach you.)

​​​​​​​FROM THE DIRECTOR
Sharleen Smith 

September brings mixed emotions as we say goodbye to the children leaving for school, whom we wish nothing but the best for. We are also very excited to start the new school year with all the children ready and eager to learn! I would like to extend a warm welcome to our new and returning families!!
