- What is your gradual entry process?
Even though your child may have other group experiences, this is a new environment with unfamiliar faces. The gradual entry process helps new children & families adjust to the centre. It allows time for your child to feel comfortable & familiar with staff and other children. We recognize that this process can be stressful for parents but by following this process, your child will feel more secure when you leave them for a whole day. You can arrange a friend or family member substitute you for any schedule difficulty.
