WHAT IS A SETTLING IN PROCESS AND WHY IS IT NECESSARY?
TRANSITION TO A NEW BONDING PERSON OF ANOTHER CULTURE OR LANGUAGE AT KINDERGARTEN
The first time in a new school or kindergarten always means a big change for children. Unknown faces, unfamiliar environment, undiscovered playing materials, new educators and all of that without their parents. Of course, children struggle with such a big change. Gentle settling in is important to ease the children's separation anxiety. In the so-called settling in process, the child is supposed to become familiar with the new educators, get to know other children, discover spaces and play materials.
