_____Probation period: Your child will be placed on a probation period starting _____________ to _______________

Explanation: We feel at this time that day care is to stressful for your child. It is our hopes that over the next two weeks your child will make the final adjustment. However, if not then it is recommended that you find a child care with a smaller group, or provide a nanny for your child and try a group situation again in a few months when he a little older and maybe emotionally ready for it.

Recommendation: The child will be on two weeks probation. If the situation does not change by the end of two weeks then at that time we will make a final evaluation. If necessary we will either extend the probation period another week if the child is showing progress. If no progress has been made then we give the standard termination notice at that time so you have time to find adequate child care. It is our hopes that your child will make progress over the next couple of weeks.
