If anyone is in the baby industry and will also be exhibiting or buying, pop along and see us for refreshments and sweet treats at stand HP121. After a very busy and successful start to the year we are now established in the UK and ready to get back into the blogging to tell you all about it!

Oliver's starting preschool

Michelle

Oliver's starting preschool: I can no longer ignore that fact that Oliver is ready for that next step, preschool here we come! Oliver is starting preschool today & although I am quite apprehensive about leaving Oliver & trusting my precious little boy in the care of someone other then a family member he is more then ready. 20140225-213256.jpg I looked at pre-schools before Charlotte came along & although I was advised to start Oliver before the baby arrived I was determined to have the baptism of fire & learn to cope with two. I have survived relatively unscathed & am happy that Oliver is comfortable with the arrival of his baby sister, the time is right.

I'm quite lucky as the preschool we have chosen for Oliver allows parents to stay with the children for the entire session if required, although I have had a chat with Oliver & I'm quite sure he will tell me when he's ready, as he did when we pulled up at Nanna's house last week. He said "Mummy can you go home so I can be with Nanna'! I was a little shocked but also a little proud.

I found this great article about preparing for preschool & below are some tips for the first day, I will certainly be using them...

On the first day Allow plenty of time. The chances are, your child won't be prepared for you to just drop him off & leave on the first day, so be prepared to hang around until he's settled. You'll probably be feeling just as anxious & emotional as they are, but try to stay cheery & confident - children pick up on your feelings of apprehension. Explain to your child when you'll be back - don't fob him off with fibs such as "Mummy's just going to move the car" when you make your exit. Tell him you'll be back after lunch/drink & biscuit time/story time. Leave your contact number with staff in case they need to call you. If your child cries & won't let you leave, ask staff for advice. In most cases they'll ask you to stay for a while with your child in the early days. When you've said your goodbyes, try not to worry. If there is a problem, you'll be contacted, but in most cases your child will be enjoying their exciting new experience.

Wish me luck, I need to be brave! Michelle X
