In this period there was rapid physical development and maturation of all mental processes. Being at the stage of formation, they are the most vulnerable to fluctuations and even breakdowns. The change of the environmental conditions and the need to develop new behaviors require effort and skill on the part of the child, cause the intense stage adaptation. How a child is prepared in the family to move into an institution, depends on the course of the adaptation period (which may last sometimes for six months), and further development of the baby.

the Transition to a new form of dialogue is needed. Only he can be the key to the successful entry of the child in the wider social environment and being successful in it. But the way this is not always easy, and to pass it requires a lot of time. Need and attention from adults.

There is a clear pattern between the development of subject activity of the child and his addiction to the manger.

If he has something does not work, the kid asks for help from an adult, carefully watching his actions, trying to repeat them. Such children are in love with for adults to solve substantive problems (for example, to open the box with the secret or figure out a way to get far lying thing). For a child who playing, it is not difficult to get in touch with any for adults because he owns the means required for this. High level of development of the subject, the ability to establish business contacts with the adult gives the child positive emotions during the stay in the nursery and ensure rapid adaptation.
