Starting to think about child care options for your family? Confused about child care subsidies? Wondering which child care is best?

There's nothing that raises the ire and anxiety levels of parents than questions and conversations around child care.
How to reduce separation anxiety for children in care
Although some children embrace child care straightaway and don't look back, it is common for many youngsters to feel separation anxiety when Mummy or Daddy drops them off and disappears out the door.

In fact, between the ages of six months and two years, lots of children experience separation anxiety, and although it can be hard leaving your reluctant child in care, this is an important part of growing up, becoming more self-sufficient, managing emotions and learning socialisation skills.

Let's look at separation anxiety in more detail and see how you can help your little worrier feel better.
