❑ Set up a play date with other children from the class or program.

❑ Start your daily routines early: pack lunch, lay out clothes, set standard bed and wake up times.

❑ If a child cries or whines when being left, staying will only make it worse.  Do not get angry, but be firm and supportive.

❑  At the end of the day, focus on what your child’s day was like - sharing the experiences. You’ll have plenty of time to worry about your to-do list later.
