If you are worried that your child is not ready for kindergarten, you are not alone. Before kindergarten, you spend so much time with your little ones. And now, you are busy trying to prepare your kids for kindergarten. New routines, new faces, new skills to master. As your little angels begin this new chapter of their lives, it is now up to parents to adapt to the adjustments. Be in mind that kindergarten comes with lots of rules, learning and to-dos for parents. Here Are The 6 Things I Wish I\u2019d Known About Full Day Kindergarten 1. There will be crying Most kids cry on the first day of kindergarten, and it\u2019s okay. It\u2019s always scary knowing that you are leaving your parents (for a few hours) for a new place, new kids, new adults and a new schedule in a big school. 2. Be aware of food allergies Schools usually have strict guidelines for home-packed lunches for the safeness of the students. Keep in mind that most of the schools are nut-free zones. Besides that, you have to check with your child\u2019s teacher if you need to avoid egg, dairy or any other allergens as sometimes these foods are restricted because there are students who have a severe allergy to one of them. 3. There will be some costs Remember that there will be some mandatory and optional costs for participating in certain school programs. There will be charges at the beginning of the year to help fund school trips, activities, lunches and special events at the school. 4. Limit after-school activities Limit after-school activities because a full day of school is exhausting for the kids. For the first few months of school, you will probably find your kids a little exhausted. Try to limit all activities and wait till your child is settled into a new schedule of school life before continuing or adding in more extracurricular activities. 5. It will all be okay Would my child miss me during the day? What if my child needs help? Will my child speak up if she's not feeling well?\u00a0 Every parent will have all these questions in their mind. And trust me, it will all be okay!
