1. Encourage your child to look forward to pre-kindergarten as a happy, friendly place.
2. Visit the school and let your child see the classrooms and meet teachers. Walk around the school with the child so the setting will be somewhat familiar to him/her.
3. Make sure labels are on all outer personal belongings (jackets, sweaters, books, Show and Tell objects).
4. Provide opportunities to play and to share with other children and to make friends.
