Children who attend daycare or preschool are already well on their way to making an easier transition to Kindergarten, however it can still be an adjustment for children and parents alike. New schedules, new kids, and a different learning structure with new rules and expectations will all help children learn to become more independent, but it can also cause (understandable) anxiety. Anxious or not, there are many resources in place to help your child get the best out of their first year of elementary school. Enter our upcoming free parenting program, Bridging the Gap: Transitioning from Daycare to Elementary School. The program will take place here at the library on Wednesday, September 30 at 7 pm.
Our guest expert Nicole Spence has lots of experience helping families as they learn new routines. As a social worker in local schools, she has often given parenting workshops which provide hands-on advice and resources, answer questions from parents, and help embrace the exciting change that is elementary school. Nicole is an advocate for kids and families, and will be able to speak to issues such as how to effectively communicate with teachers and administrators, and how to create the best routine for your child. Whether your little one is going to elementary school in the next few years, or has just come from daycare or preschool to a new Kindergarten class, this is the perfect program to help get a leg up on elementary school.
