Lots of parents, manage to fullfill most of these requested criteria...you might even think it's easier for a stay-at-home MOM to easily provide all this for her little ones and manage to well prep them for their school year..but it is NOT!!
At this point you know you NEED a... DAYCARE!!
A professional place & assistance that will offer educational value for your child so their little growing brains gets stimulated and nurtured in a structured and caring manner!
Like all the other PARENTS our Quest for that Perfect DAYCARE started!
We didn't have lots of options...BUT we had our eyes on a place which was on our way back and from my son's school...We saw pictures and read other parent's review on it, yet we decided to see 2 other options before giving it a shot!
1st 2 places weren't bad (compared to their fees) but they lacked that SPARK!! That feeling you get when you see something... and you instantly know it is the ONE!!!
And that's exactly how WE FELT when we finally went to our appointment in our Chosen DAY CARE!
The Day she started her Day-Care...
We filled in the application and paid the registration right away! I have to say it was the most expensive of all YET...YOU are definitely getting what you are paying for!!
First 3-4 Adaptation Days starts after the regular school hours!!
So the teacher and the child gets to have a private one-on-one time!!
My daughter got to explore, play, and discover her new place on her own terms!! Her teachers were able to quietly and privately monitor her without being distracted by a class full of other students!!
Day 2 & 3 we increased the time while I was waiting for her outside... and on the 4th day, she went on the regular morning time - 7:30 am and I actually left HER ALONE till noon!!!
Of course I was HOME watching her non stop via a special online CAM that's only assigned for each Parent of a registered child! (more and more reasons why we loved this place....OPEN transparent relationship...) YOU get to see everything and in time YOU learn to TRUST them enough that gradually you get less hooked to monitor and observe what's going on..for you will know your child is with super professional people!!
We got to see what a Happy community this school have created!!
1st 2 days were Good, although we took her around noon which is the NAP time!! However, the last 3 days she pulled huge tantrums..it was then when she realized I wasn't there anymore!! So dropping her in the morning was HARD..and seeing her sad and crying all day was even worse!!
BUT....the way they handled her made me jealous!! Not even the teachers gets involved in helping the new kids pass their adaption period smoothly.... but also the management steps in to give a helping hand!!
Both the coordinator and the MANAGER spend their time soothing, rocking, singing, hugging, and drying those tears!!!
And then I saw her interacting, and gradually playing and joining the circle and at that moment I couldn't have felt any happier from our choice!
2 Aprons - Bed cover along with a Stickers Label booklet of her Name provided by Essmak
All in all (very high quality material - very neat and professional!!)
This Monday we started our 2nd week... Oh how she was delighted to wear her Apron just like her friends and we couldn't be any happier to see her joining the amazing
Le Village du Cocon & KIDventure DAY CARE :)
Yes she is still crying on drop off (I won't lie & say she's Not..), yet she's having a great time!! She stopped crying and looking Sad all day, she's interacting and playing with her friends & guess what?
She already requested to switch to PULL UPs so she can be like her friends!!
I can't wait for all the other upcoming and exciting changes... to see her adaping and excelling!!
