We believe orientation is an important process where educators and families can share important information about the child’s needs and those of the family as well as become familiar with the environment and the educators. The process helps to make the transition from home to care as smooth as possible with the aim to maintain continuity between home and our centre.
All families are asked to conduct three orientation visits before the child’s first day. The visits are free, and a family member will need to attend with the child. During the visits you will have a chance to sit down with educators and office staff as this will be the first steps in an ongoing communication journey we hope to take together. We also encourage a mock goodbye process to allow the families to get a feel for the transition process on the child’s first day and to lay the foundation for bonding between the child and the educators.
