1st day. We advise arriving as early as breakfast time, from 8:30 until 10:00, accompa- nied by a parent.
2nd day. The attendance should not exceed 2-3 hours. However, on the second day the presence of a parent during the learning process is not advisable. The child can bring a favourite object, to maintain an inner sense of security.
3rd and 4th day. There is usually a certain “breaking point” (crying, acting up) when the child has explored and become familiar with the environment and starts to occasionally remember his/her home and parents, which often leads to restlessness. This reaction is normal for both smaller and bigger children, when starting kindergarten. At this point it is useful to remember that the task of a parent is to help their child get accustomed to the kindergarten environment and daily routine and to continue taking the child to the kinder- garten daily.
5th day. The child can stay during the naptime. It is recommended to take the child home after 16:00. By the second week, the child will have adapted to the routine. As we al- ready mentioned, each child is an individual personality, so the adaptation period may be influenced by various surrounding conditions.
