I'm not sure I have much advice to offer, my daughter was so excited to start school and is really easy going and friendly with everyone. It's tough though, that first day! I'm pretty sure that kids aren't required, by law, to attend school until Grade 1. Maybe she'd benefit from waiting a year? That's up to you though. What would be a good idea is take her to see the classroom and meet the teacher sometime. At least then it'll be familiar to her. Do you know any parents of the other kids that will be there? If so maybe you could arrange some play dates before hand so there will be some familiar faces there too. I hope she enjoys her time there. You never know, she may come home and found she really enjoyed herself. Good luck!

I am new to this page and I thought I would put it out there that I am a mom to a 5 year old who will be starting kindergarten this fall. I am scared and happy all at once as I am also due with my 3rd child around the time that she will be starting her first day of school. Any advice on how I can make this transition easy for her? She is a very sensitive little girl and worries so much about wanting to be everyones' friend that I worry she will be easily hurt. at this time she is in pre-school and will be graduating in June and she compares herself to her other friends who may be a little thinner than her or in some way is different from herself. I tell her each and every day how smart and beautiful she is, but I am so afraid as kids are so mean and it seems to be starting earlier an earlier now that I have kids entering the school system. Any advice on how I can make this a special and easy transition would be greatly appreciated.
