My son would cry when I handed him to the teacher but as soon as I turned the corner he stopped. I use to hang around and play until he got involved with playing and then id slip off. do what makes you comfortable. its your baby

Yes-I agree. Doing dry runs or setting up other times when you leave your daughter with a sitter or friend so that she get's used to Mommy going away and coming back again.

Be understanding the first couple of drop offs, then have a coversation with the child until understanding is gained. Simulate the experience as much as possible, letting the child know that it is okay.

My daughter is pretty good with drop off at her daycare now, but as we transition into preschool, I'm thinking that I will ask if I can coordinate a few "dry runs" in hopes that she will get accustomed to the new space and teachers.

I agree that by going over what the days routine will be and when you will see them again was key for my son. It helps to say something like " I will see you after recess" so they can associate when instead of just "see ya after school".

more with the teach you are dropping your child off to so that they are more comfortable with you leaving them with that teacher.

have a big boy/girl talk before you get there. No bribes. Just a talk about what is expected when we get to school in a age appropriate way. Most of the time child are putting on a show for YOU. To get a reaction. Know your child.Try communicating
