The first day of kindergarten – the day they have been waiting for “THEIR WHOLE LIVES”, is rapidly approaching. The classroom may look a bit different this year, but that doesn’t make this big milestone less of an occasion to be celebrated.
Some tots anticipate the first day of kindergarten with excitement, others with jitters and most a combination of both. The parents and grandparents typically marvel over how fast this season came and mildly grieve the baby that has now blossomed into a child independent enough to be away from home, part if not all of the day. A child that is grown enough to ride a school bus, carry a backpack, make friends on their own and start the learning process that will continue for the next decade and beyond.
