are a few things you can do to make the starting Nursery School a little easier
for you and your child. Here are a few suggestions from parents:
Try to visit the school your child will attend, including the classroom,
cafeteria, playground and bathroom. Introduce him/her to their new teacher. And
inform the teacher of any important issues (lovey at nap-time, potty problems,
personal habits, etc)
Shop for new clothes and school supplies (like a lunchbox) to get your
child excited about nursery school.
Be sure your child knows his/her full name, address and phone number. Also
write the information on a little card which they may carry with them.
If the time is available try starting with several hours before jumping
into a full day at first. Perhaps even gradually increasing time over the course
of several days.
DROP and LEAVE! Say good-bye and when you will return (for example "I
love you. I will be back after lunch.") Do not stay with your child for an
extended period of time. It only makes the separation process harder on you and
