3 year old, first time at preschool
My 3 year old will be attending preschool in a few weeks, how can I prepare her for this? When we went for our interview/tour she was very, very, shy and did not want to talk or interact with anyone. She warmed up mildly by the time we left. The preschool seems very well run, interactive, and the teachers seemed great. I am unsure of how to break the news to her that she is going to be spending 3 days a week there, when she didn't have the greatest time. We are younger parents (27 & 28 I guess now qualifies as young..) and none of our immediate friends have kids. Our daughter has spent most of her childhood with adults, which is one of the main reasons we wanted to send her somewhere to hang out with other kids and interact. She is very smart and verbal, I'm just concerned about this transistion. Any thoughts?
