I wanted to go back to work and enrol my child at childcare. My friend told me that her child cried badly for weeks when she started at childcare centre due to the long hours. She advised me to start my child at a school with short hours daily so that when my child starts to attend long hours at childcare, he can adapt faster as he will learn to trust that I will fetch him home after school. This gives my child time to learn to be confident and independent before he goes to childcare. After my child has learnt to be independent at Star Tots Playgroup, he has an easier transition when I enrol him at childcare.
