Frequently Asked Questions
What time should I turn up?
Speak to your Centre Manager about the best time to drop off your child on their first day to ensure they can support you with the best possible experience. We do like to encourage families to turn up on their first day at the time they would normally be dropping off their child so everyone becomes familiar with the routine. However, we know that first day can be hard for parents and children, so we work in partnership with families to find the best solution for their individual needs.
What do I need to bring?
At Guardian, we provide almost everything your child might need during their day. However, for hygiene reasons we ask families to bring a name-labelled water bottle as well as a change of clothes, as some experiences can get messy! If your child uses any comforters such as a dummy or sleeping bag/blanket to help them feel more settled at rest times, please send that along. We want them and you to feel as comfortable as possible.
What’s the best way to say goodbye to my child?
It’s comforting for your child when you take a few moments to settle them in, rather than running off quickly at drop off. We know mornings can be busy and you’re often in a rush, but it is so important to always say goodbye and remind them that you will be back soon. This provides them with a sense of security, especially when they see you again at pick up time, just like you promised!
