Adaptation

First days in the new environment may be difficult for both the child and his parents. For the first time, the toddler has to part with his beloved mother or another close person, with familiar surroundings and toys. He meets other children and new aunties. All of this can cause both astonishment and curiosity, but also it can arouse anxiety by disturbing the sense of security and separation anxiety. The process of adaptation can take place in various ways – depending on the child’s needs we try to address it appropriately. It allows your child to slowly adapt to the new situation under controlled conditions, yet – still having a parent in sight.

In Little Clouds we try to divide the whole process into a few days (total of c.a. 30 hours). We certainly begin with the conversation with the Parents / Guardians, when we try to answer all their questions and introduce them to the everyday life of the nursery. One can attend such meetings alone, but also with the child.

Second meeting usually takes 1-2 hours. The parent stays with the child in the nursery and accompanies the candidate
in fun activities. During the third meeting, we encourage the parent to leave the child with one of our aunties for 30 minutes, and we observe the child’s reaction and behavior while the separation. This meeting usually takes 2-3 hours.

In the following days, we try to introduce the child to the normal life of our nursery. We go out together for a walk, participate in all activities, try to put the baby to sleep. Every day we gradually extend the time the child spends with us. During these days we encourage parents to spend time in nearby cafés, yet, remaining available at all times.

If necessary, we always allow more time for the adaptation. At every stage, we are happy to offer help and advice as far as the expected behavior is concerned as well as describing the new reality for a child at home.
