Kids Starting Summer Programs

Children across Minnesota will soon be on summer vacation. For the younger ones, that means a transition into a new child care or camp program or attending day care for the first time. To make that change go smoothly, Karen Fogolin with Child Care Aware of Minnesota says preparation is the key to success.

Fogolin says preparation includes establishing a routine, as well as familiarizing children with how each day will go.

In addition to finding a program they feel comfortable with, Fogolin notes that parents also want one that’s appropriate for the age and mental development of their children.

More tips on a successful transition into care this summer are online at the Child Care Aware website. (childcareware.org)
