1. These are all great tips even for kids heading off to preschool or pre-k. I agree that the experiences a child gains in a classroom are vastly different than those that happen at home.

    The kissing hand is a great back to school book for the child weary of leaving mom and dad. I always read it to young classes in September and it helped my then 2 year old adjust to being away from me his first year of preschool.

    • Thank you so much Gina! It is so hard to get kids back on a schedule after summer. I know my boys went to bed really late too! Thanks for following Mommy University!


  3. Eventhough my boys are at the tween phase of life this article has such rich content and it takes me back to when I was a first time mom how petrified I was for my oldest to start pre k. Thank you for sharing I’m positive other moms out here will feel alot better knowing someone gets it

    • Thank you so much for your kind words. I hope I have helped some nervous moms out there. Good luck with the upcoming school year. Thanks for following Mommy University:)

  4. My husband and I are considering kindergarten to start out daughter’s education off at an early age. Thanks for your comment about how the kids should be able to hear stories and learn to focus. I like how you said that preparing or going to kindergarten, you should start following a time schedule during weeks leading up.
