Read our tips on separation anxiety in the Creche guidelines here.

To assist children and their families to adjust to the transition that is involved with coming to the Crèche, staff will ensure that they offer a safe, secure and clean environment that welcomes the children and the family.

Whenever possible a new child should be introduced to the Crèche gradually. Short visits or stays before the children is due to stay longer in the Crèche will help them to become familiar with the crèche staff and the crèche environment. When a child first starts Crèche staff are encouraged to speak to the parents about the following;

  • Specific routines, for example, if the children is toilet training and needs to be taken at certain time intervals.
  • Strategies for settling the child down, especially for babies.

Crèche staff will encourage parents/guardians to say goodbye to their children calmly and confidently. Parents are encouraged to remind their children where they are going and when they will return. Parents are advised not to leave without notifying their child and to ignore protests from the child.
Crèche staff are aware that it can be a very hard experience for parents to be separated from their child, therefore, every effort will be made to help parents and children during this period. Parents are encouraged to discuss any areas of concern with the Crèche staff and be confident that all discussions will be kept confidential.

Will you come and get me if my child needs me?

Yes, if your child is distressed and we believe it is in your child’s best interest, we will find your location on the sign in register and speak to you discreetly.
