Nowadays having a good pre-schooling experience is very important for kid as it helps to build a base for formal education. Thus, parents start pre-schooling hunting as soon as kid turns two.

A child goes through a lot of changes while growing up. Though, social and educational changes are unavoidable, but some kids may have some emotional difficulties at the beginning. A constant comfort of parent’s presence can make separation, even if it is for few hours, a difficult thing for kid. There is no doubt that quality wise preschools in Delhi are the best. Still,
there are certain things parents should keep in mind to make this transition easier for kids.
Parents should talk to kids regarding this matter. Tell him/her about it, a few days earlier; do not shock him/her by telling that from tomorrow you are going to school. Give some time to kid for mental preparation. In fact, you should talk about the fun activities which kid will get to do at the school.
Tour the school with the kid- it is the best way to ease kid’s fears. Once they get to know the place where they will spend time away from home, then half the problem is solved. Just assure them that you will come every day to pick them up on time.
The excitement or anxiety is highest on first day of school. Thus, there are certain things parents should do on the first day to make it a good memory for the kid. Firstly, reach to school a few minutes early to avoid hustle. It will also help in avoiding the stress and everything will be done in a clam manner. Never leave kid without informing. It can be disheartening for kid if you leave without informing. You should always try to go and pick them up personally. In fact, you should be there a few minutes earlier as waiting for you may create negative emotions in kid’s mind.
Most importantly, never show hastiness in selection of preschool. There is no fix period for Preschool admissions, it happens all the year. So, don’t rush into things. Choose wisely and give importance to each and every detail- it includes teaching methods, teaching faculty, routine followed by school, emphasis given on extracurricular activities, environment of school, safety measures taken by school etc. If you emphasis on all these things then your kid will have best pre-schooling experience.
