Final Thought
Dear Parent / Caregiver, 1. Please plan the beginning of the day so that I dont have to be rushed to get to preschool, or I will get worried, confused and irritable.

2. Dont push me inside the door and run. Please dont slip away without saying GOOD BYE! or I will be afraid that you may have left me for good. When you leave, tell me when youll be back and try hard to be on time or I will worry.

3. Sometimes I spend a lot of time making something an I am proud of it. If you show that you value it too, it makes me feel happy and successful and ready to tackle more difficult things.

4. Put your name down to visit the Preschool and come when it is your turn. I feel proud when I can say to my friends Thats my mommy or daddy.

5. Please dont talk about me when Im within earshot. I dont miss much and I do worry about what I hear. The teacher will always be happy to find somewhere else to talk with you about me.

6. Send me to preschool in my school uniform so I feel comfortable, so that I can play with my friend without feeling out of place.

Fi n al t h o u g h t

7. When you come for me please dont ask me or the teacher if Ive been good. I try but sometimes things go wrong. I dont want to be reminded of my mistakes. Ask me what I have done during the day.

8. What makes me feel good is if you show that you are really pleased to see me and are interested when I have something to show you.
