Enrolling your child in pre-school is both exciting and stressful. It is helpful to prepare your child for what will occur in order to lessen your anxiety as a parent. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Greensboro, we offer years of experience as a childcare provider, with a curriculum that is suitable for learners from six weeks of age to 12 years. Here are a few suggestions for preparing your pre-school child:

Have both of you meet the pre-school staff?

Meeting the staff will lower the anxiety of who will be their teacher, it is helpful to know will be present in the classroom prior to that first big day! Having them repeat the teacher’s name and learn more about the adults at the school will lessen your child’s fear of the unknown upon the arrival of the school-year.

Communicate with your child

Positive preparation for pre-school requires candid and frequent communication. Talk to your child about the changes that will be occurring. Make the experience as fun as possible, by letting your child know that other children will be there too, and it will be a safe environment for all of them.

Practice separating from your child

Begin with quick separations from them to monitor their reaction, and then progress to longer times. This will ease a child into the separation process when they enter pre-school and are away from you. Leaving a child with relatives while running errands can allow for separation, but with someone your child knows and trusts. This will also start teaching your child independance. A goodbye game or handshake can let your child know when it is time to bid “farewell” for a short period of time.
