3. Explain the Schedule
Making your child aware of his or her schedule during the day is key, says Sutera. "Talk to children about the daily schedule. Tell them what to expect for circle time, snacks, rest and outdoor play. It doesn't hurt," she adds, "to create a ritual for good-byes." Some kids know they get a certain number of hugs and kisses before walking parents to the door, or look forward to waving until parents are out of sight.
