You've spent time preparing your little one (and yourself!) for Kindergarten and before you know it, the first day of school will be here! The best thing you can do as the caregiver is to stay calm and peaceful. Try to save up your tears for the car ride home if you can. It is definitely okay to feel sad but we find it helps if you can stay calm and peaceful with your little one as you are working through all of the transitions that come with the first day of school!
Allow a little more time off in your work schedule so you can be available if/when your little one might want you to stay a few moments more. Be ready to pick up your little one after school and celebrate what a brave boy/girl they were today!!
