Child does not want to come into class. She says she wants to stay with her mommy, she will miss her mommy and wants to go home with mommy.
Good morning Jane! Good morning Paula. Of course I can help. Why don't you show mommy the game you like to play in this room and I will just make sure Ms. C is ok in the classroom and I will be right back.
Good morning Mrs. A. Jane is having a hard time coming to school today. I wondering if you can help? I don't know what to do.
I want to stay with you mommy, I miss you mommy, I need you mommy, I want to go home....
Jane show me want you like to play with.
Will you stay and play mommy?
I will stay for a little bit Jane.
Good job Jane, showing mommy the toys you like to play with.
I like dolls!
She loves to play with dolls at home to.
Jane you can always come to me in the morning and we can find things to do together. Or we can find a big buddy to come help to. Would you like that.?
Jane would you like to play with dolls when you come into the classroom? What other toys do you like to play with?
That might help. Is there something I could be doing to help the drop of in the mornings?
Paula, maybe we can arrange a time to talk more about the morning transition. That will give me some time to talk to the school counsellor for some strategies to.
Jane would you like to take the doll to class with you. Maybe you can show her your drawing you did yesterday.
I think i'm ready to go to class now.
That would be wonderful.
Paula, let's work together and I'm sure with time, patience and understanding Jane will start to feel more secure at school. I will email you a time we can meet once I have met with the counsellor.
Thank you for your time. I find the mornings very challenging.
