Family Handbook - Enrolling your child | Goodstart
What to expect on your first day

Leaving your child in someone else’s care is never easy - for parents or children. It’s natural to feel a bit anxious. Rest assured, our educators will be there to help you both through the process of dropping off your child and saying goodbye.

On your first day, areas will be set up for your child including a locker or basket for their belongings and a family pocket for parent information. Formal communication will be provided to you at the end of the day to let you know how your child settled in and what experiences and relationships they have engaged in. Your child’s educators will also stay in touch during this important first day to let you know how things are going. At the end of each day you can talk to your educator to see how your child is settling in. You’re welcome to read through the educator’s observations to get a feel for how well your child is adapting to the change as well.
