Zia Play Along - Daycare

As daycares are re-opening up, it is important to prepare your children so that they have the right mindset for going back to daycares. Here are 5 tips to consider for this preparation.

🖐️ Create a plan that gradually helps kids go back on schedule for bedtime, nap time and meals to make the transition to daycare easier.

🖐️ Talk with them about what is happening with COVID-19 and how life will slowly go back to the way it was before the pandemic.

🖐️ Expand your social circle, if possible, to include another family with a child of similar age to your child.

🖐️ Find new ways to play with your kids, like getting on the floor to play with their toys or role playing with their dolls, stuffed animals and figurines.

🖐️ Organize online playdates and video calls with your child’s friends.
