Tips for Surviving the First Few Weeks of Daycare in Arlington, TX

Any change will take some time to get used to, but taking your child to daycare in Arlington, TX for the first few weeks can be a challenge for even the best parents.  At Texas Children’s Academy, we are dedicated to not only providing your children with high-quality child care, but we also love to do whatever we can to make your life easier. That is why we have come up with this list of tips to help you survive your first few weeks of taking your child to daycare:

  • Develop a routine- Do your best to establish a set routine well before you start taking your child to daycare. This will help them to be used to waking up and getting ready for the day each morning. Don’t forget that nothing with a kid is set in stone, so make sure that you are flexible.
  • Give yourself plenty of time- If it normally takes you forty-five minutes to get ready for the day, give yourself an hour and a half. That way, when there are bumps in the road, you have plenty of time to deal with them.
  • Do what you can the night before- Pack lunches set out outfits for both you and your child, and prepare your morning coffee each night. This will make your mornings a lot less stressful.
  • Take advantage of Watch Me Grow– When your child is suddenly gone for part of the day, it is completely normal to miss them a lot. Luckily, you can check in on them whenever you want with Watch Me Grow.
