I went back to work when DD was 6 months, and we have shared a nanny with another family who has a little girl the same age as DD. The two girls are pretty much sisters - they love each other and fight occasionally. Both families have decided to have the girls start preschool full time in Jan., so we will no longer have our nanny. The girls will not be attending the same school. How do I make this transition easy on DD? We have visited the school several times - the last time, I actually left her alone for a little while in the classroom and she had a great time and didn't want to leave. On our way home, she asked where the other little girl was. I just told her that she was going to a different school and this school is DD's school. DD seemed ok with that, but then she asked where her nanny was. I told her that she was going to school because she is a big girl now and we'll still see nanny sometimes. I've also explained to her that she will go to school and mommy will pick her up after work(which is similar to now - DD sees me when I come home from work). She was ok with that, but I'm not sure how much she really understands.
