This event is part of NPN’s School Choice Series, hosted by Erikson.

Are you and your child ready to “Kiss ’n Go”?

The first day of preschool is approaching, and you wonder how to help your child manage separating from you and getting comfortable in their new classroom.

While new developmental steps always bring some challenges, there are many ways parents can support their child and help them reach a new level of competence, learning, and growth.

Come join the discussion with Margret Nickels, Ph.D., director of Erikson’s Center for Children and Families, who will cover the following topics and more:

  • How to help children prepare for and cope with the transition to school
  • Strategies and tools you can use to prepare your child for school and to help them adjust to new routines
  • Identify and address forms of separation anxiety your child may be experiencing
  • How parents can manage their own feelings about this big step in their child’s life
