Tell the child that you will be waiting outside the building

Your child will feel safe if you wait outside, in front of the building. For example, to be more secure your child, you can tell to check you through the window.

Tell the child that there are a lot of new friends

Tell your child, that you must go working and now is the period to separate for only few hours. Explain, how there are new friends which parents are also on work to earn money for their children.

Get known the child with the teacher before the first day in the kindergarten ( if it is possible)

If you know the new teacher that will be educating your child, it’s easy to get known to her. Also, meet her with your child that will start loving her new teacher.

Let your child cry for some time, it won’t happen anything

If your child cries, let it cry. This is okay, in this way, tears will help him to pass this separation. However, this sill stop for a few weeks and after this period comes, your child won’t like to leave the kindergarten but will wish to stay longer. Let me tell you that this happened with my own child.
