How To Deal With Separation Anxiety

Early learning

It’s only natural to worry about separation anxiety when taking your young one to childcare for the first time. Having a crying child clinging to your legs is a scene that many parents dread.

But it doesn’t have to happen like that. Here are some tips to help you and your child through the first few days of childcare.


Check with the educators for the best kinds of questions to ask your child, to open up conversations about their experiences during the day.

It can be hard on everyone to deal with separation anxiety, but as long as you are confident in the centre you have chosen and the abilities of your child’s educators, you can rest assured this difficult stage will pass.
