The first few weeks when a child is settling into pre-school is a time of crucial importance to their later happiness in the pre-school. All children are individuals and while some children will adjust fairly easily to the new environment and routines, others will take longer to feel comfortable and secure.
It's often easy to overestimate a young child's ability to cope with transitions. The lure of toys doesn't always compensate! The experience can be overwhelming for some young children, especially if they have not had experience of another form of care outside the family.
As parents and as early years practitioners, we can take steps to ensure that the transition goes as smoothly as possible.
Children who have a positive start to their new environment are more likely to feel comfortable, relaxed and valued, feel good about themselves as learners and have a sense of belonging to the pre-school community.
