Quick Answers...

 

Should I just slip away while my child is occupied at the family childcare center so as not to cause him to cry?


It is best to say goodbye instead of slipping away. It may be easier for you to slip away while your child is content, but it may damage your child's trust in you, which may pave the way for more difficult separations in the future. It's best to say goodbye, give him a hug, reassure him you'll return, and leave.
