Preparing for Your First Week
If it’s your first day with us or your 45th, new routines & new people can bring excitement and nerves. We honor each child’s feelings and aim to help them feel safe and comfortable in their own time and in their own way. To help your child prepare for their first day:
- Watch this 5-minute video, A TimberNook Day at Treeline
- Read the Welcome Packet together, notice the toilet photo
- Prepare your child’s bag together (use this list).
- Check out the site map
It’s okay if your child is still nervous. It’s okay if you are still nervous. If you are a part of Little Wild Ones or Going Wild and the drop-off transition feels scary, here are some ideas to consider.
- You can stay in your car or enjoy the chairs in the barn during the program
- You can ask your Certified Play Guide to text you an update part way through the program the first day
- You can join your child for Welcome Circle the first day
- Kids in early childhood may enjoy Daniel Tiger, Season 4, Episode 12 “Grown Ups Come Back”. Here is the song from the episode.
If your child feels sad during the program, the Treeline team will join your child, honor their feelings, and offer comfort via proximity to an adult, a walk around the play space, a food/water break, storybooks, and more. If your child continues to feel sad we will text/call the parent to make a collaborative decision on what might be best for the child.
What to Wear
Comfortable kids equals happy kids. We recommend dry fit, long sleeve shirts, hiking pants, and non-cotton socks because they help our kids to stay dry, cool, and comfortable. Plus it helps to keep the bugs away & cuts down on the need for sunscreen and bug spray . These Amazon Affiliate links are merely suggestions. When you buy from these links, we get a very (very) small kick back (at no additional cost to you). You can also find similar items locally at Thrift Stores and between friends. We will have a limited number of Treeline “Play Wild” long sleeve, dry fit shirts ($25 youth, $30 adult) available for purchase the first few weeks.
