WHAT IS A SETTLING IN PROCESS AND WHY IS IT NECESSARY?
TRANSITION TO A NEW BONDING PERSON OF ANOTHER CULTURE OR LANGUAGE AT KINDERGARTEN
A good settling in process acknowledges the child's grief and loss anxiety, builds trust in the child and parents, and ends with the child feeling safe in the new environment. The aim of settling in is for the child to establish a sustainable relationship with the educator. A good relationship with the educator is the basis for all educational processes in the kindergarten. The child can only show exploration behavior if he or she feels secure.
