Abstract [en]

I have written an experiential essay about my role as a preschool director and the important work decisions that I face. What is best for the child? That is something that I think is important to take into consideration.

In the narrative, I describe how an induction occurs at my preschool. We use an "old" tried and true method which spans two to three weeks, which I believe is best for children under the age of two. They need to first connect with

one educator who they are comfortable with before they are secure enough to play and explore the environment of the preschool.

In recent years, another method has emerged which is shorter and which has quickly became popular in many preschools. Parents speak favorably of it. Is it because they do not have the time to spend on acclimatization before returning to work? Teachers are also positive, is it to avoid having parents that come and go for several weeks?

This affects me and has made me feel pressured to reconsider my decision on which method we should use for acclimatization. The question is whether the short version really is the best seen from a child's perspective?
