First Day in Childcare?

Starting your child at childcare for the first time? No worries, we are here to help you with some tips

  • Our infant, baby care and preschool is here to support and guide families and parents from Northern Beaches area in orientation after enrolment. We provide orientation play sessions for families in North Manly. Throughout orientation, families and our team will work out a transition plan for your child, as we all know transition from home to day care can be a big change for a young child.  Prior to the first day, your child will attend short play sessions at the early learning centre where she/he can slowly become more familiar with the new environment and the educators. We encourage your to share any of your concerns with our educators.

  • After the orientation sessions, families and the educators will evaluate and decide together if your child is ready to attend a full day with us. We will be staying in touch with family about your child’s situation, emotions, sleep, eating, playing and learning. We welcome family’s involvement and feedback on helping our day care to better cater to each family in Brookvale and your child’s needs throughout transition and orientation.
