My 3 year old haa been going to preschool since September last year and this September she is moving to a different preschool. We have been on a visit to the new school with him and I said when he is a bigger boy he can go to that school and explained that it will be great fun etc etc. tomorrow morning we have a stay and play session for an hour theN on the afternoon he is going to his normal preschool. I am a bit worried in case this confuses him? How do I tell him that he will be leaving the school he is at to go to a new school in September as he probably won't understand how long away september is? I'm probably over thinking things but I'm just not sure how I should explain it to him? Any tips or advice would be appreciated
Went to the new school this morning for a stay and play session and it went really well he happily plawith and was interacting well. I explained to him that when he is nearly 4 he he can go to this school all the time but for the moment while he is 3.5 he can go to the school where he currently goes and I said the treachers names. he was also excited to try on and buy the new school uniform :-) thanks for the reasurrance

Jack did a year at pre school and then in the summer we moved to a new area - so he had new house and new pre school. He was absolutely fine. I would just tell him that he is coming to see a new pre school and see what he thinks. He probably won't have any concept of when (or even what) September is, but that doesn't matter, just knowing that this will be somewhere he will come to play when he is a bit older (ie, nearly 4), and that he will still be going to his normal pre school until then will be enough. I don't think you need to think about explaining it further than that really, unless he asks.

WCatarina said. Just say this is where you will be going when you are nearly 4. Hope today goes well x
