When your child joins pre-school – do you want your child to be the most popular child in the pre-school classroom? Of course you do! Then you need to help your child settle in Pre-school. When a child goes to Pre-school – it is the first time he is away from his parents. It is the first time he/she is alone in an unfamiliar environment. And it is the first time his parents are likely to receive an unbiased opinion about their child from a neutral stranger.

So the parents of a new pre-schooler are always anxiously awaiting a good review from their child’s preschool teacher. They want to hear their child’s teacher say that their child is doing wonderfully well in the new environment.

Asthma and allergies If your child has asthma, it’s important to let the preschool know and give staff a copy of your child’s asthma plan. If your child has allergies to food or other substances, the preschool needs to know this too. If your child is at risk of anaphylaxis, make sure staff have access to your child’s adrenaline auto-injector and know how to use it.

Slide9:

Clothes for preschool Comfortable, loose-fitting clothes that let your child move freely are best for preschool. It’s also a good idea to send your child to preschool in clothes that are OK to get dirty and to pack some spare clothes in your child’s bag. Closed-toe shoes make it easier for your child to run and climb.

Slide10:

Educational programs Your preschool’s educational philosophy will be outlined in its information booklet or website. Details of the educational program might be displayed in the building, and you can talk about it more with staff. You might also get a regular newsletter keeping you up to date with what the children are learning.

Slide11:

Fees Fees and the way they’re collected will vary from preschool to preschool. It’s a good idea to ask about your preschool’s policy ahead of time. If paying fees is a problem for you, let the preschool know so it can link you with financial support or arrange payment options.

Slide12:

Food Some preschools provide meals, whereas others ask you to pack lunches for your child. Many preschools have policies to reduce the risk of children having allergic reactions to food – for example, ‘no food sharing’ policies. Or you might be asked not to send foods that contain the most common allergens. This information is usually in the preschool’s information booklet or on its website.

Slide13:

Medication Preschools must keep a formal written record of any medication your child needs while at preschool. You’ll need to provide a medication authority form for this. You’ll need to provide evidence of your child’s immunization status for preschool enrolment. You can read more about this in our article on immunization in childhood.

Slide14:

Parent participation Being involved in your child’s preschool helps you to understand more about what happens there. You can take part in preschool activities in many ways – for example, joining excursions or getting involved with preschool management.

Slide15:

Policies Your preschool will have policies on things like behavior management, bullying, asthma, allergies and dispute resolution. All policies should be in the preschool’s information booklet, on its website and/or on display in the preschool.

Slide16:

Problems Most of the time things go smoothly at preschool, but sometimes you might have concerns or issues. It’s a good idea to speak with preschool staff if any problems come up. Working things out quickly can prevent a small problem turning into a bigger issue.

Slide17:

Safety rules All preschools have safety rules. To keep your child safe, it’s important for you to get to know these rules and follow them. The rules will include: people with permission to collect your child out-of-bounds areas for children traffic issues like parking Emergency response drills.

Slide18:

Sickness If your child is sick, it’s best to keep him at home where he’ll be more comfortable and won’t pass germs on to other children. If your child has an infectious illness – for example, whooping cough, school sores or chickenpox – it’s a good idea to let your preschool know so the staff can tell other parents. Head lice are a common issue for children at this age. If your child has head lice, it’s best to tell the preschool and keep your child at home until you’ve got rid of the lice.

Slide19:

Sun safety Your child needs to take a broad-brim hat to preschool so she’s protected when she’s playing outside in the sun. It’s also a very good idea to get in the habit of putting a broad-spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen on your child at home before preschool.

Slide20:

Toilets If your child is toilet-trained before starting preschool, it’s helpful to dress him in clothes that make it easy for him to use the toilet – for example, pants with elastic waists. If your child has clothing with zips, buckles or buttons, you might want to help him practice opening and closing these at home.

Slide21:

And you can also pack a spare pair of underpants in case of accidents. Toys from home Each preschool has its own policy on whether children can bring toys from home. It’s best to check before your child packs her favorite teddy in her bag.
