Getting through the first few weeks of child care

For parents and children starting child care for the first time separation anxiety is common. For many children, child care is their first experience of extended separation from their parents and for many parents the guilt they have about leaving their child can make the first few days of child care a very emotional time.

Separation anxiety is a natural part of the developmental process and children between two months and three years are particularly susceptible. It should not at this stage be confused with Separation Anxiety Disorder, which is a psychological disorder that can seriously affect the daily lives of adults or older kids. But with small children, handled gently, this is simply a phase that will pass as soon as they settle into their new environment and make new friends.
