Preparing Your Child For Preschool

As your child gets ready to start in any new school or camp environment, it is helpful to remember that all children respond uniquely to their change in routine. Some will jump right into school while others will take some time to warm up. Separation anxiety is a concern for many parents, but with a little preparation, you can help ease your child’s transition into school.

At our school, we encourage you to bring a transitional item such as a stuffed animal, book, or photo of you to keep at school. Keep your drop-off calm, short and sweet by spending only 2 – 5 minutes in the classroom. Once you are ready to leave, reassure them you will be back, give them a hug and kiss, and offer them to to the teacher if they are in distress. Leave promptly after saying goodbye as delaying the exit will cause undue stress on both of you. The teachers will work their magic with love, cuddles, hugs, distraction and reassurance. It is normal for a child to cry when his/her parent leaves…it is their way of saying, “I will miss you.” As they gain confidence in their new routine, build independence, and get to know their teachers, drop-offs will become a happy experience…it may just take a bit of patience.

The following article from Scholastic is helpful in learning about how to help your child (and you!) adjust quickly and smoothly to his/her new experience.
