3 Tips to Prepare Children for Preschool, Creve Coeur, Missouri

Getting your child ready for preschool doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, the sooner you start preparing them for the transition, the easier it will be for both of you. Lucky Lane Nursery in Saint Louis, MO, understands this a big step, so they’ve compiled some tips to help you navigate the process.

For those who want their child’s first day to go off without a hitch, try following these three tips: 

  • Visit the Preschool: An excellent way to reduce any anxiety your child may feel about their first day of preschool is to visit the facility with them. Introduce them to the teachers and let them play with some of the children who will be their classmates. Doing so will help to familiarize them with their surroundings before the first day.
  • preschoolsChoose the Right Time: Just because your child is old enough for preschool doesn’t mean it’s ideal to enroll them now. Speaking to other parents and preschool staff will help you determine when they’re developmentally ready for such a significant change. 
  • Read About Preschool: There are many fun, informative books out there that will give your child a better idea of what to expect when they start attending preschool. Titles such as “Maisy Goes to Preschool” by Lucy Cousins and “Little School” by Beth Norling offer an approachable way for children to learn what daily activities could take place in class, as well as answer some of the questions they have. 

Following the steps above will make the transition from home to preschool a breeze.
