View Full Version : Settling in a 2 year old

19-11-2011, 09:59 PM
I have a mum who is ready to start her 2 year old with me asap for 2 days a week (and I'm available and eager to get going). I'd be interested to hear what kind of settling in/how long etc has worked well for you with a similar age. Doing contracts on Monday.

Thank you!

Really depends on child and parent.
It has varied from initial visit and then start for real to mum visiting alongside lo for a few visits them child on it's own for a short while extending it up until proper contract starts.

I would offer a couple off 2 hour session for child in it's own and see what mums reaction is then go from there.

i would get mum to come for a few playdates with your other mindees and maybe pop out for an hour on a later visit. it can be harder at this age if they've not been in childcare but if the child has been in nursery or another CM, I'd imagine they'd be fine. I've had severla who have been no problem at all but one or two who have really struggled.
