Share this article with other mums

Your kid's first time at daycare can either be a stressful or a wonderful experience. Make sure you know how to prepare for your kid's first day.

Your kid’s first time at daycare is an important milestone in you child’s life. It’s one of the moments where your child can start interacting and socializing with other kids around his or her age. It can also be a tough time since your child will be unfamiliar with his or her environment and sometimes children can be shy or uncomfortable around other kids.

It’s also a transition not only for your child, but for your family as well. If your child is used to sleeping late, then you will need to adjust not only your child’s sleep schedule but also yours as well since you will need to prepare everything that your child needs to school. The entire family also needs to be supportive to ensure that your child won’t have any anxiety about going to daycare.
