#Work on potty training. Some schools expect your child to be at least partially potty trained, especially if your child is 4-years-old or older. If your child is younger, your child may not need to be completely potty trained, however you and your child should be working on it together.<ref>https://www.understood.org/en/learning-attention-issues/signs-symptoms/academic-readiness/how-to-know-if-your-child-is-ready-for-preschool</ref>[[Image:Prepare Your Child for Nursery School Step 1 Version 2.jpg|center]]

#* Wait patiently for you child to be ready. Your child should start showing interest in the toilet and underwear before you begin. This will usually be about the age of 2 or 2½. Your child should also be able to understand directions and stay dry for about 2 hours at a time. To increase success, make sure that your child can communicate and wants to be clean and dry. Coming to your when he/she needs a change is a wonderful readiness skill. Your child should also know: up and down, clean and dirty, and wet and dry. They should know the names of their body parts and the potty terminology used in your house, for example, pee and poop. <ref>https://ift.tt/2D4Jokw>

#* Get tools to help you potty train. It's difficult for your child to use a regular-sized toilet without any adaptations. You can either get your child a small toilet that is their size, or you can invest in a smaller child-sized toilet seat that fits over your regular one.<reF>https://ift.tt/2KFhO1D> You may also want to get a stool that your child can use to reach the toilet, or to reach the sink when washing their hands after using the toilet.

#* You can also try switching to underwear or training pants. A lot of preschools will appreciate it if your child wears disposable training pants because they are easy to clean up after accidents and the child can pull them up and down making it easier to use the toilet. <ref>https://ift.tt/2pG51EU> In fact, letting your kid pick out underwear or training pants can help get your child excited about the process. It's also important to have clothes that your child can get off easily.

#Give your child choices. Another way to encourage enthusiasm is to let your kid pick out school supplies in anticipation of school. Obviously, the school will have some required supplies, but letting your kid pick out their lunchbox, backpack, and even new school clothes can make them more excited.[[Image:Prepare Your Child for Nursery School Step 16.jpg|center]]
