Pick a preschool you trust You are leaving your precious child under the care of a team of preschool teachers – be sure you trust them! Talk to your child about starting preschool. Talk your child through what the first day of preschool will be like, including the many fun things they will be doing at preschool, for example playing in the playground. Mentally prepare them for this new and exciting experience. Take your child to visit the preschool. This will allow your child to become familiar with the surroundings, and maybe even a few faces around the preschool. At Shaws Preschool, we encourage new children to come and play in the playground to familiarise them with the environment.
