By merely reading, playing, and exploring together, you’re helping your child prepare for preschool activities.

Act it out
Use your child’s penchant for pretend play to organize him for preschool. Pretend that you are going to high school, hanging up your backpack, and sitting down for group time. Play games, read stories, and make an easy snack. Teach your child a couple of necessary social skills. Mention the way to get someone’s attention, alternate, or take part play. Use puppets to role-play.
