Easing the Transition into Nursery School

Dr. Howard Bennett
Author Dr. Howard Bennett
Submitted 01-11-2007

Many children have difficulty separating from their parents when they begin
nursery school. My wife came up with a terrific idea to help our son adjust to
school. First, she asked the director for a class list two months before school
began. Then she called all of the parents on the list and invited them and their
child to a Sunday morning play session on the school playground. She told
parents that she would be there with our son every week, but that other people
could come whenever they wanted to. By the time school began, our son had met
everyone in his class and knew half of the children pretty well. His transition
in September was much easier than his mom or I would ever have predicted.
