  • School is going to help you with almost all of those things.

    Talk to them now about your concerns about what she will eat. Do they provide the food or do you? Can you bring snacks that you know she will like? (Parents can NOT do that in my daycare).

    Call the director and talk about these things and they will tell you what they can and can not do and any tips for NOW.

    Good luck!

  • I would think that once she sees all the kids doing things as a group, your daughter will just follow along. Ask for a certain teacher with experience. Dont forget to take a picture!

  • Often children will become good listeners in school when it is a new adult figure who is in charge. Don't put any pressure on her to be a good listener. The teachers will take care of that and will conference with you if need be. This is pre school, correct? This is the time when children get the socialization skills for being in groups. It really doesn't take a lot of preparation on your part. This is supposed to be fun. Talk to the teacher about the eating issue and naps. They might tell you to send in snacks with her. They are there to help you and will put you at ease. Perhaps you could call the school and ask if you can discuss all this with someone now. Relax and enjoy this new experience! I'm guessing she will do fine. GL
