We all experience some anxiety during the enrollment process, and our new children and families do too! Helping children and their families become comfortable in a new childcare setting can be one of the biggest challenges we face. In this course we will look at the roles of engagement and how to establish, build and maintain positive relationships with new children and their families. Because enrolling a new child is more than just filling the open slot, it’s adding a new family to the program community. This course is appropriate for early care and education professionals working in a center-based program.
