Parent education: Helping children cope with separation anxiety

By Ayuko Boomer, 2-mornings and 3-mornings Lead Teacher

I hope you are enjoying the beginning of the school year! It’s an exciting time for all of us – teachers, children, and caregivers!  There are so many feelings you and your child may feel as you go through the first month of school. I came upon this article about separation and transitions that may be helpful to read as your child begins a new journey going to preschool.  I shared this article with the families in my class, but it’s worth extending it to the whole school.  Please take a look.

Here is another article from National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

If you have any questions about the beginning of the school year, please don’t hesitate to contact your teacher.  Have a wonderful first semester!
