Preschool Preparation

Posted on February 5, 2010. Filed under: All Ages, Event | Tags: , |

My son is only 4 months old, but believe it or not, he will be going to preschool before I know it! (Time flies.)  He is my first and a lot has changed in preschool education since I went to school ## years ago. (You didn’t think I was actually going to give away my age did you?). So I really need a crash course in Preschool 101. Apparently I am not alone.

The Goddard School is sponsoring a special event designed to help parents make the right preschool choice for their children.  Boston’s first Preschool Discovery Day will help parents clarify what to look for in a preschool.  The event is free and there are activities for toddlers too.

Topics include:

  • What is the most age-appropriate and effective way for preschoolers to learn a second language?
  • How can your child’s preschool complement your family’s fitness goals?
  • What are the most effective ways to teach manners and socialization to young children?
  • What are creative approaches to interest your child in a lifelong love of reading?
  • What steps can you take at home to prepare your child for school?

Dr. Kyle Pruett, Clinical Professor of Child Psychiatry at the Yale School of Medicine and author of “Partnership Parenting: Men and Women Parent Differently — Why It Helps Your Kids and Can Strengthen Your Marriage”, will be on hand to answer questions and sign copies of his book.  Parents will receive a FREE Goddard Parent Guide DVD, developed by Dr. Pruett.

Parents must pre-register, but the event is free.  It is being held at the Doubletree Hotel Boston/Westborough, 5400 Computer Drive in Westborough, MA from 12-2pm on Saturday, February 20th.

Hope to see you there!
