  • You need to ask the people she will be with then. They should be able to answer your questions.

  • no, for parents who didn't pack their child off to daycare @ 6 weeks old I would say it's normal to wonder how they'll do with strangers. just remember that these people do this all the time- they've seen it all, and it will be fine!

  • I ALWAYS HAD STORY HOURS WITH ALL MY KIDS. MINE WERE @ THE LIBRARY. WHERE DO YOU GO FOR YOURS? I WOULDN"T WORRY IF THATS HOW THEY  DO WHERE YOUR FROM. I"M SURE  THEY ARE USED TO IT. IF YOU ARE WORRIED WHY NOT STICK AROUND FOR THE 1ST TIME,& CHECK OUT HOW THEY DO THINGS SO YOU KNOW. IT WILL BE GOOD FOR HER. EARLY INTERRACTION IS AWSOME FOR THEM~

  • Believe it or not, but this is going to be harder on you than it is on your little one. The best thing you could do is to relax and take a few deep breaths. Come up with some questions and ask them. You will make it through this.

    But you might want to bring some tissues. I cried so hard when I left my little one (age 3) for three hours of bible school for one week over the summer. Tissues in this case are a must!

  • There's nothing wrong with staying at the library in another area if you're that worried. I know I would. I couldn't drop any of my kids off at a public place like that and just leave them there, I'd sit & read or browse the magazine racks or something, but no way would I leave, not even if it was the 10th time.

  • Take her right when you drop her off that way you dont have to worry about it. Stay and see how it goes, that way you and her are comfortable with the teachers
