Before First Day

Preparation is the key! The first day at Landsdale Early Learning & Enrichment Centre you and your child may have different feelings, from nerves to uncertainty on how your child will adjust in a new environment.

Remember that you and your child have already visited the Centre. We have met you, and your child and
we are familiar with both of you.

Our Educators use the information to help your child through the settling in period.
 The children will soon come to the Centre filled with excitement of meeting their new friends and Educators. It will be there second home and extended family.


      Before Attending Centre

Every child's settling-in period is to make it easier for them here are a few tips:


  • Talk calmly before with your child about what will occur in the Centre

  • Reassure them that they will meet new friends and have fun exciting activities (Eg. Playing with different toys, games, music and painting)

  • Empower them and be positive and upbeat about the new learning adventure they are going to have

  • Short visits before starting will help to acclimatize to the new environment

  • On weekends drive past the Centre to show them so they know the area 

  • Get your child involved by choosing their own personal bag and labeling (So they know it)
