There is no hard-and-fast answer. What they teach will depend completely on the school you've selected to send her to. I wouldn't worry about teaching her specific academics before she starts. Focus on self-care skills, peer-communication, following directions. Things like, how to put on her own jacket, how to button, zipper, etc. If she's not already comfortable staying without you, start working on the concept of mom leaving but coming back to pick her up later. For the most part, preschool is more about the social, emotional aspects of school readiness than anything else. Yes, they'll be learning age appropriate academics - BUT - the goal here is to get ready for school...and that's more about readiness skills than hard-core learning academics. Unless, of course, you've selected a highly academic prechool program. The best way to asnwer your question, is to reach out to the school itself and ask.
