Leaving your child in a social setting for the first time can be a big step for both you and your child. Here are a few tips to help ease the transition:

    • Visit the Center Beforehand: Schedule a visit to Niseko Kids Club before the first day. This will help your child become familiar with the new environment, meet the teachers, and see the other children.
    • Talk About It: Discuss the new experience positively with your child. Explain what they can expect in a way that is exciting and reassuring.
    • Bring Comfort Items: Allow your child to bring a favorite toy or blanket that provides comfort and a sense of security.
    • Create a Routine: Establish a consistent drop-off routine. A quick, confident goodbye can help your child adjust more quickly.
    • Stay Positive: Your child will take cues from you. Show confidence and positivity about the new experience, which can help alleviate any anxiety they may feel.
    • Communicate with Staff: Let our staff know if your child has any particular needs or if there are any specific strategies that work well for them. We are here to support both you and your child through this transition.
    • Be Patient: Adjusting to a new social setting can take time. It’s normal for children to experience some initial separation anxiety, but they will soon adapt and start enjoying their time at Niseko Kids Club.

Remember, our team is experienced in helping children adjust to new environments, and we are here to support you and your child every step of the way.
