Poems About Leaving Daycare


Child Leaving #1

              You are a very special person
              And you should know,
              How I loved to have you in my care
              How fast the months did go!

              Please come back to visit me
              As through the grades you go
              Try hard to learn all that you can
              There's so much to know

              One thing I tried to teach you
              To last your whole life through,
              Is to know that you are special
              Just because, you are you!

Child Leaving #2

Dear (Mom & Dad's name)

I give you back Taylor, the same child you confidently entrusted in my care.
I give her back pounds heavier, inches taller, months wiser,
more responsible and more mature than she was.
Although she would have attained her growth in spite of me,
it has been my pleasure and privilege to watch her personality
unfold day by day and marvel at this splendid miracle of development.

I give her back reluctantly, for having spent this time together in the
narrow confines of my house, we have grown close,
have become a part of each other,
and we shall always retain a little of each other.

Ten years from now if we meet on the street, Taylor & I,
a light will shine in our eyes, a smile on our lips,
and we shall feel that bond of understanding once more,
this bond we feel today.

We have lived, loved, laughed, played, studied, learned
and enriched our lives together.
I wish it could go on indefinitely, but give her back I must.

Take care of her, for she is precious.
Remember that I shall always be interested in Taylor and her
destiny, wherever she goes, whatever she does, whoever she becomes.
Her joys and sorrows I'll be happy to share.

Please call on me if there is anything further I can ever do for her.
I shall always be her friend.

Goodbye Poem

            You are a very special person
            And you should know,
            How I loved to have you in my care
            How fast the years did go!

Remember

This is hard to say, but I will try . . .

Goodbye (child's name here) Goodbye
Will you remember the earliest years?
It is important to me that you remember them with smiles not tears
Remember the time when you were small
Remember the time when we played ball
Remember the time we went for a walk
Remember the time you just wanted to talk
Remember the time we played in the sun
Remember the time we had party fun
Remember the time we laughed real loud
Remember the time we made pictures out of clouds
Remember the time you ran outside
Remember the time you fell and cried
Remember the time you needed a friend Remember the time you hoped would never end
Remember the time we sang together
Remember the dancing forever and ever
Remember the time we read from your book
Remember the love behind the look
Remember I care about you and all that you do
Remember I am waiting you hear from you
Remember I want for you only the best
Remember I know you can do the rest

Love,
