Preparing Your Child for Back To School
For most parents sending your child to preschool for the first time is a nerve racking and perhaps stressful situation. Don’t forget, you are not alone. Your child could be going through the same feelings that you are. Remember that most children can sense what you are feeling. We always recommend to our families that they be strong for their child, even if you want to cry the first time your child walks into their preschool classroom. Remind your child that they are safe, will have fun and that you will be returning.
Before your child’s first day of preschool, put together all of the items he or she will need and label them. Allow your child to be part of the process.
Responsibility for ourselves
Discuss with your child the experiences he or she may have on the first day, the names of his or her teachers and whether the class will be going outside. Give us a call to see when you can come in to show your child the center and their classroom.
Explain to your child some of the school’s policies. For example, let your child know that he or she needs to tell the teacher when they needs to use the bathroom and what to do if your child doesn’t feel well. One way to help your child to socialize and become more comfortable in their new environment is to role play with your child different situations as classmates and as the teacher. These are just a few ways to help your child start a healthy preschool experience.
Respect for others
Every day your child spends with us will begin with the Challenger pledge: To take responsibility for ourselves, respect others and do our personal best.
Preschool aged student will have the opportunity to get involved in some of our extracurricular activity.
