You have done all the work of
checking licenses, policies, and references. You've met with and like the caregivers
the setting. You feel you have chosen well. But it can still be hard to leave your
with a child-care provider. It's normal to feel that no one can take care of your
as well as you. You may worry that the child care you have chosen isn't good enough.
It may help to imagine your baby having a nice day with the caregiver. Try to:
Imagine your baby spending the day with the caregiver
Picture them playing together
Imagine how they'll
Picture things they might do during the day
If this is difficult for you to do,
get to know your caregiver better. This can help you to better trust them.
