Quick Answers...

How can I help my 18-month-old daughter get used to the new child care center?

Before leaving your child at a new child care center, plan to visit ahead of time. As time comes for her to start, talk about the new place. Allow plenty of time the first morning so that you do not feel rushed. As you leave, let her know when you'll be back. For example, you may tell her you will return after her afternoon nap. Let her take a favorite toy or blanket that will help her feel safe and secure. She might also want to take a picture of you to comfort her while you are gone.
