I will be enrolling my son, who will be 4 next month, into a private pre-school starting next fall. I have mostly been home with him. He's really only used to his immediate family.
Need some tips from other mommies out there. How did you go about getting your kid to prepare and adjust? I know it's going to just break my heart if he's scared for me to leave him!
If possible, take your child to the preschool a week or two before he is suppose to start. See if they will allow him to take a tour or play with the kids for a little bit. Talk to him about becoming a big boy and going to preschool. Get a copy of the schedule he will follow and try to do a few of the activities at that time (ex. art at 9, lunch at 12, etc). Count down the days until he starts by either making a calendar or cutting strips of paper and looping them together to form a chain. Either mark off the day or cut one of the chains until the big day. Good Luck!
