This video will focus on how to prepare your kid for preschool !
Here are five ways to prepare them and you ;)
#1 Confidence - Its crucial that they have this skill because it is valuable skill to carry for the rest of there life. Also their confidence will have you feel less uneasy for them going to preschool all on their own. How to build their confidence ? Have them talk to older people, maybe your friend answer questions or people you meet at the park. That way they won’t be so intimidated to meet their teachers for the first time.
#2 Supplies - Have the right supplies, preschool will focus on having necessities such as extra pairs of clothes and undies.
Often times--- ( Preschools have their own list).
Also When packing supplies its nice to have them help, that way they know whats there and it’ll help get them excited for school.
I added an additional clip on supplies that may help them learn and they can use before going to pre-k.
#3 Play dates- Try to enroll them in a class where they already know some of the kids. For my niece I know It will make her feel so much better that she has friends that go there too. It would benefit them so much by having someone they already know, especially because they'll be seeing all these new faces Play dates will always helpful and will also help build confidence as well!
#4 Practice Separation - Increase their independent skill. Let them do more things on their own. Because they won’t have you there to help them so you want them to be better prepared and feel less insecure by themselves (Amber -Washing hands by herself)
This will especially be helpful transitioning them to their new school, getting them ready for their first day.
#5 Don’t linger- This Crucial step is important on their first day of Pre-school When it’s time for drop-off, keep your goodbyes short, sweet and simple. Give her a quick hug, tell her how much you love her, and leave her in the hands of their wonderful teacher. Even if she’s crying hysterically, she will likely only cry for a few minutes once you’re out of sight. But if you linger, the crying will probably last longer.
