Starting at an ELC, preschool or kindy can be a scary experience but it doesn’t have to be.  We find that parents play a big role in children’s confidence when starting at our ELC.

Some different ways you could help your child feel confident about starting at ELC are:

  • If you (as a parent) feel nervous try not to let it show
  • Tell them good things about the ELC and how much fun they will have
  • Come and join in our Flourish Playgroup on Fridays, so your child gets to know the centre and feels comfortable here
  • Get them to try on their uniform and give lots of compliments
  • Invite kindy friends over to play
