                        Preparing Your Child for Preschool

Preschool is going to be a new and great experience for your child.  Some
suggestions for helping your child over come his/her fears of facing new
situations are:

1) Always speak of going to school as a pleasant, joyous event.

2) Talk to your child about the new experiences they will have and the new
friends they will make.
                                                                                           
3) Talk to your child’s teacher,your child will be happy and secure if they
know that their teacher and parent have a pleasant relationship.

4)Talk to your child about their daily routine.  

5) Guard your actions.  We suggest you place your child in the hands of the
teacher, assure them that you will return.  When your child realizes that you
are not available, they will accept the teacher’s guidance more readily.  It has
been our experience that the longer a parent lingers the harder the separation
is for the child.  We know it will be hard for you to leave your child in tears
but we assure you that we will do everything we can to help your child adjust
to this new experience.  Please feel free to call us when you arrive at work to
see how your child is doing or feel free to log into the web cam and see for
yourself!
