Tiny Tots First Day Exposure
The first day of kindergarten has arrived, and I’m sure you’re feeling a series of emotions. As your child is raving in the back seat about how excited they are for their first day of school, you’re probably having second thoughts: Will my baby be OK? What am I going to do all day without him/her? Will I finally be able to go to the bathroom in peace? These are just some of the questions racing through your mind as you pull into the school parking lot.
It’s time to calm down, take a deep breath, and let me put the first day of kindergarten into perspective for you.
When it comes to the first day of school, it’s OK to be a basket case. Let’s face it: You’re probably feeling even less stable than your child, but that’s normal. However, it’s important to understand that you’re not the only one who’s nervous.
It’s normal for a child to exhibit many emotions on the first day. Some children face separation anxiety, which leads to crying, while others run around uncontrollably because they’re so excited. These behaviors and others are completely normal. It’s important to know that teachers are trained to deal with them, and eventually, your child will adjust and feel comfortable with their new school-day routine.
As for teachers, welcoming a new group of students can be nerve-wracking. Imagine being responsible for 25 witty, energetic, and unfiltered 5-year-olds. On top of that, we’re often more nervous about meeting you than your children. But don’t worry, we’re dedicated to making this transition as easy and stress-free as possible for both you and your child.
