At this stage,your child is gradually getting ready to get accustomed to the idea of being enrolled in a playschool. It may be time to start searching for playschools. This is the age when most children start playschool, but whether your child is ready for the transition or not is something that only you as a parent can know.
What you need to know
This may be the first time your child is going to be away from home and you in an unknown surrounding, so be ready for some bit of resistance from your child. Some children are able to adapt and adjust to the playschool in a couple of days while others take months. During this time there would be heart wrenching cries from your child every day when it is time to be dropped to the playschool.
What you need to do
Adjusting to a preschool can be really tough for your child and your help will be much needed at this time. Try to prepare your child in advance about what to expect there. Focus more on the fact that it is a place for fun and games rather than learning. Most children start enjoying the playschool in a few days but the separation from parents is something that is difficult for them to handle. Your child worries that you may not come back, get lost or just forget to pick up the child. At the preschool your child is expected to get along with other children. So if your child has not had too much social interaction with children then it is a good idea to plan some to get your child prepared.
