Initial period of adjustment

The transition from home to nursery or kindergarten should be done smoothly, in a way that does not stress the child. For children, the new environment is unfamiliar in the beginning and so is the presence of other children and of educators.
One of child’s parents must stay with the child in the first days, until the child is becoming comfortable with the new environment.
The time for adjustment can last up to a few weeks. Be prepared to spend this time in the nursery/ kindergarten, along with your child.
