A Sense of Belonging


Nursery Teacher Tip:

Infants and toddlers need to belong and feel secure. To help
children feel less insecure when their parents drop them off, I had
parents give me three things: a picture of their child, a picture
of the parents, and a cassette tape with the parents’ voices. The
parents usually taped a special story for their child and spoke
their child’s name repeatedly.

I hung the pictures on the wall. Now when the children cry for
their parents, I take them over to the wall to see their pictures
and I play their parents’ cassette. This has helped calm children
