A Poem by Jamie Solley for the first day of preschool

The First Day

For children and parents alike, that very first day of school is always an emotional one.
This gorgeous, precious tiny little person who is, for the first time, is transitioning into a classroom. No matter how they have been cared for up to now, whether it is at home, with a childminder or in a créche, that very first day of formal preschool is an emotional one. Their child is starting their journey to school and it is a real milestone.

This lovely poem is for all the parents who are dropping little ones to preschool this year. It is a reminder of the care that they will receive in the classrooms of dedicated professionals who will nurture and guide each child as they grow into independent little learners

The poem has been reproduced with the permission of the original author, Mrs Jamie J. Solley, a kindergarten teacher with over 20 years experience. It is available to download below as an A4 poster and comes as two pages- one in colour and one in black and white.
