Handling Separation: From the Director

If a parent is concerned about separation anxiety, it will be suggested that the parent bring the child, prior to their start date, and spend time in the room with their parent. Another suggestion is to ease the child into the classroom and routine(ex: start with a couple hours on the first day and gradually extend the length they stay throughout the week).
If separation anxiety occurs after the child has started, teachers will spend extra time with the child to try and soothe them.
