Please note that young children occasionally experience separation problems. Here are some suggestions to help your child adjust to the experience

  • Avoid letting this be your child’s first experience away from you. It is helpful if the child has learned to trust other adults (babysitters or caregivers).

  • Talk to your child about how much fun he or she will have in the program before your arrival.

  • Tell the child where you will be and when you will return.

  • If possible, come for a short visit the day before your reservation.

  • Our goal is for your child to have a wonderful experience. If your child has a difficult time adjusting, we will contact you so that together we can decide what is best for your child.
