Allow more time.

This may seem simple, but it truly is a life saver. To avoid stress and potential melt downs allow plenty of time for transitions.

Make sure your pre-schoolers know what is going to be happening.

It may seem like they are not listening. You may be surprised. Use pictures of familiar items and lay them out to let them know how the day will flow.

Prep ahead of time.

Get kids involved when choosing lunches, clothes or anything that will directly impact their day, and plan together.

Know when to call it.

If it’s not working, it just isn’t. Don’t feel bad about taking a break or even removing yourself and your kiddo from the situation. Instant stress relief.

Use down time for “you” time.

Whether your pre-schooler still naps or just has rest time, use it for you. This is different for everyone. It may be a rest or a power cleaning session. Take the time and make it yours.

Tips for kindergarten prep

No one can feel fully prepared when it comes to sending your kiddo off to preschool, but these are the important stepping stones that every child will have to take.

These back to school preschool routine tips are important to have and can be reused for many future “first days” to come.
