Going to Kindergarten is a Big Step 8/21/2009

GOING TO KINDERGARTEN IS A BIG STEP
The move from preschool or day care to kindergarten is major event for:

YOUR CHILD:

He or she may feel:

  • happy
  • sad
  • excited
  • worried
  • curious.

YOU:

The change is a big one for parents, too!

YOUR WHOLE FAMILY:

It's a time to:

  • set up new routines at home
  • build and enjoy new relationships with other children, teachers and parents.

Starting kindergarten is a new adventure. It's part of growing up!

YOU CAN HELP PREPARE YOUR CHILD - AND YOURSELF
By doing so, you'll help:

MAKE THE MOVE A SMOOTH ONE

Kindergarten means changes in daily routines.  You can take steps to reduce any stress you or your child may feel -- and add to the fun!

CREATE A POSITIVE ATTITUDE ABOUT SCHOOL

It's the key to success in school -- and life!

BUILD CONFIDENCE

It's natural to have doubts and fears about change.  Talking about what your child can expect -- and his or her feelings -- will help you both feel more secure.
