Introducing your child to childcare is probably one of the most challenging tasks you will ever come across as a mom. Children love to play and interact with others, but they are generally not fond of news places, new people or even being introduced to new routines, and that’s when an hourly daycare comes in.
My kids were introduced early on but I used the hourly daycare center to drop them off for a few hours before introducing them to a full-time nursery. Some children, like mine, can be apprehensive for a couple of days, so introducing them to an hourly center is a great way for them adjust to the new setting and allow you to have some free time. I started by dropping them off 3 hours a day twice a week, and slowly increased the time. By the third week, they were happy to see the teachers, the new environment and they had become more than familiar with the childcare center.
