My Dd will be 16 months in a few days, and I finally got the call that said my job came through and I'll be starting within the next week. So, my question is, how to make the transition from home care to daycare easier for my Dd. I've talked to her about starting daycare, and gone over some rules with her for it (you won't be able to hit the kids at daycare and whatnot). She does understand a lot. I talk it up to her a lot and tell her there will be a lot of kids there for her to play with and that there will be stairs she's allowed to climb (she can't climb the one's at home) and I've even started playing music at naptime like they do and having her lay on a mat like they will. Is there anything else I can do to make it easier for her? She'll be going all day long, I'm not sure if I'll be able to transition her into it either, because I'll get my job before she'll actually have a slot open at daycare.
