Any transition or change is difficult. As school is about to start, there are many things parents have to be ready for. One thing that is always difficult is leaving your child on his first day going to "big" school.

How do we know if our child is ready for that big leap from kindergarten to elementary or grade school? Many factors determine this, but there is no fixed sign that can tell you whether or not your child is ready. Every child is different; kids develop at different rates. The important thing is that you always make him feel safe and constantly bolstered by encouragement and love.
 
It is crucial to research the school you want your child to attend. This may seem simple, but it is important to note whether or not your child will fit easily into this new environment. The way you teach your child at home and the method of teaching that he has grown accustomed to in pre-school should be considered, as are the potential schools' social environment and values.

Here are 10 tips to make your child’s transition to big school a little easier.
