Here are a few tips to note down if you're about to use a daycare centre's services for the first time. Print out name stickers for your child's belongings After you've gathered together all of the things your child will take with them to the daycare facility (such as their lunchbox, thermos, blanket for naps, their stationery and their backpack), you should print out name stickers and place one of each of these objects.
I work as a nurse, and I'm separated from my husband, so it's quite complicated for us to work out child care sometimes. We have an family child care centre down the road that is amazing and does so much to keep our family ticking when we need child care out of hours. I know I'm not the only one who needs flexibility in child care, and I know that a lot of other parents are also struggling with the juggle of managing child care out of the normal opening hours of a centre. This blog is a place to share ideas and solutions we have worked out, with each other.
