TG's Child Care orientation process for families

Before we welcome you into the TG's Family, we support our families through an orientation process.

This provides time for you, your child and TG's Educators to get to know each other. It gives your child a chance to explore TG's environment. They can begin to develop a relationship with TG's Educators and meet other children at TG's with the security of having you close by.

TG's provides a handbook to families at orientation time. This handbook includes information about TG's, our TG's Educators, opening hours, and policies on issues such as holidays, health and safety, managing illness and fees.

The orientation visit is a good opportunity to ask questions and build a relationship with the Educators at TG's.

What will help my child to settle in?

Starting early childhood education and care can be an emotional experience for both you and your child. Children can often experience some difficulty settling into a new environment, particularly if they find it hard to separate from family or familiar caregivers.

Here are some suggestions to help support your child:

🤗 If possible, start with shorter or fewer days then gradually increase their time spent at the service.

🤗 Find a preferred Educator that your child can be left with when you drop them off for the day.

🤗 Spend some time settling your child into a favourite activity before you leave.

🤗 Inform TG's about what comforts your child and discuss how you manage activities or times of the day they find unsettling. For example, does your child have a toy or blanket that helps them to settle?

🤗 Show your child that you feel secure about leaving them at TG's and that you trust the Educators. Say ‘goodbye’ confidently, and reassure them that you will be back later. While it may be tempting to leave while they are engaged happily in play, it can be very distressing for your child to realise you have left without saying goodbye.

🤗 You should feel that you can contact TG's at any time to check how your child is settling. The Educators should provide you with sensitive, honest feedback.
