Help!!! Playgroup gg to excursion without parents?!?!

Postby MyMooMoo » Wed Jun 08, 2011 2:46 pm

Hi,

Have you ever not join your DS or DD in playgroup to go for excursion?
Are they too young to go on an excursion without parents?

Im wondering am i paranoid. DS is gg on an excursion without me!!!!! and im getting very worried.. :( DS is not even 2 years old!!!

Is it a norm that parents dont join excursion when their kids in playgroup?

Thanks & Regards
Phillis

Hi Phillis,

Both my girls has been in infant care since young and they are now 5/6 years.

Excursions without parents is common and I can say it has been safe :smile:

Where are they heading to? If it is a park, they will tag the playgroup along. Places like zoo or Hort park, they will only invite N2 and above

If you are worried, you can ask the principal and see if you can join them for 1 session to see how the teachers handle the children.

hope this helps

Yeah Don't worry too much. My DD also went on excursion when she was 18months. I think the teachers are more worried than me. They call me when they safely reached childcare.

Hi YKVT,

Oh really?!?! Wow... They are very thoughtful. I trust his teachers. But it is me who worry too much... Actually, it is a indoor excursion and only 2 hours... hehe..

MyMoomoo, it is the initial jitters, once you get used to the constant excursions , you will become more relaxed to it :hugs:

Their 1st excursion were when they were infants and I had loads of questions for the school.. plus anxiety attack :-p

yup, its safe. my DD goes to school at the age of 18 months. i didnt allow her to go for the first time as i was worried like you.
i remembered she went with the school excursion when she is ard 2 plus for the first time.
the teacher reassured me she will be fine

some of the centre allow parents to tag along if they are worried, maybe you can check with them?

Hi

I have a question. Kids under 2 or 3 usually get free entry to most places for excursion. Do the school still expect the parents to pay?
