Handling Separation: From the Director

Separation anxiety is a normal part of a child's development. It is hardest on the parents when a child begins a new center and has a hard time separating from a parent in the morning. This is expected and we are trained to deal with these situations. Teachers are caring and sensitive of children's needs.
