Lingering in The Classroom
 
hello, i have a new daycare center in ny. in our 18 to 36 month classroom we have 7 students and 2 sometimes 3 teacher in the room at 730 am drop off or at any time. all the kids are great, but 2 have mommy issues and cry till they are gone, these two mom want to physically come in the classroom and sit and hang out, i moved all cubbys to just out side classroom, so there is no need for them to come in, any suggestions on how to make it a more speedier drop off, i am now seeing why schools make it so you cant come in any longer, we would never get the day started.
any suugestions would be great.

You could do your own version of the kiss and go campaign on each classroom door. ;)

This is a big issue for some parents, making it a big issue for us :rolleyes:

I always stress to the parents that they are making things worse for their child. This usually helps them rethink the behavior.

If a parent insists their child needs comforting before they leave, I would provide a quiet place they can go AWAY from others where they can go hug or whatever they want alone.... but not within the classroom of other kids. Just tell the moms that it is a privacy issue so they are NOT allowed to be near/around or next to the other kids. You'll do the same for their child should another parent want to visit. ;)

You will more than likely find however the second you offer them a private space to snuggle, the parent will more than likely pass. It's not the snuggling/comforting their child they are aiming at. It's attention for THEM. Once you remove the audience (you/other children) they no longer see the "issue" as an issue. ;)
