Any tips and advise for preparation before 1st day of pre-school? How to get my child mentally prepared? Should I accompany my child for a couple of days for an hour or so to observe the other children in the playgroup? And also she can get acquainted with the environment before the first day. Some childcare allow 1 full day where mummy can stay with child in the center but I m afraid the child may assume that the mum should be around all e time in the playgroup this might not be good to train her independence.

I read books and tell them all about school. during first day, i would stay to observe the whole situation and also to understand the school better. second day, i would drop by kid and say a good bye. Don't sneak away. Yes baby will cry. but it will stop after awhile. Say a time u be back and stick to that time. When you fetch baby, they will be in tears after all the emotion buildup.Give a big smile and big help!
