Excited, worried about separation, a bit sad or not sure what to expect? Here are some tips and strategies to help your child settle in at preschool. Starting preschool: what to expect Your child is probably feeling excited as well as a bit nervous about starting preschool.
She might have already been to child care or playgroup and feel comfortable about joining a new group. Or preschool might be your child’s first experience of being away from family. You might be feeling a mixture of pride, excitement, loss and anxiety as your child becomes more independent, particularly if you’re doing this for the first or last time. Before your child starts preschool You can start getting your child ready for preschool in the months and weeks before the first day. During these visits, your child can see and experience what he’ll do at preschool, who he’ll meet, and what happens during the preschool day. With permission, you could take some photos of the preschool to show your child before he starts. Some preschools have a preparation or orientation book that you can take home with you.
