Message length 300 characters recommended

Ask your daycare provider if you and your child can first observe for a day so the child can become used to the new environment. Then see if you can do a test run where you leave your child in their care for a couple hours. Make sure your child has their lovey so they have something to help comfort them. Having your child see that you or your partner will come back for them helps build their trust and a child who's more familiar with a new environment and caregivers will likely have an easier time adjusting.
