Dropping your child off on the first day of kindergarten will probably be emotional for both of you. The first day of school can be exciting, but your child may be nervous about being left there for the first time. At least you can reassure your child you’ll be together again at the end of the day and eager to talk about this new experience.
Marbles Kids Museum hosted it’s annual “Kickoff to Kindergarten” event, in partnership with the NC 529 Plan. There was information about how parents can use the NC 529 Plan to start saving for college for their rising kindergartners. This was the second event hosted by Marbles Museum aimed at getting kids ready to start school.
