Handling Separation: From the Director

Our school requires parents to do a transition period. This is where the parent comes into the classroom and spends time with their child prior to enrolling in the school. Parents with their child learn about our program, meet the teachers and friends.
When children have anxiety with separation we make sure to comfort them with love, encouragement as work with the parent and child to ensure transitions are as smooth as possible. Our teachers and assistants are trainined on how to meet the needs of the children in our program.
