Handling the First Day of #preschool
I’ve been thinking of scenarios of what would happen on Joshua’s 1st Day of Preschool… Would he willingly enter the classroom? Would he like his teacher enough to let go of Mommy? Would he eat his snack or ask teacher for dede (milk bottle)? Would he suddenly say in the middle of class, “Let’s go home na!”
I’m hoping for the best case scenario, that he would enjoy school and make new friends. I’m also thinking of what kind of treat to prepare for him after school… Shakey’s Pizza or KFC chicken?
One thing’s for sure, the whole extended family is excited for his Big Day. Some would even skip work just to send him off to school haha! I can just imagine a whole truckload of people waving at him as he goes inside the classroom… A precious milestone!
Here are some tips on how to handle the First Day of Preschool by What To Expect…
Your preschooler’s been playing school with his stuffed animals for a few weeks now, has had playdates with a few of his classmates, and can’t stop talking about his new lunch box and backpack (Trains and cars on both? Way cool!). All good preparation for the big day ahead — and good signs that your pint-sized pupil is ready for his preschool debut. But will that excited anticipation translate into a smooth, stress-free transition on day one? Maybe — or maybe not as much as you’d hoped. Either way, these tips can make the first day of preschool (and the days after) a more manageable experience for your little one — and for you.
