As a previous preschool teacher. I find a lot of importance in Preschool Graduation. As a teacher those moments were filled with teaching songs, making graduation caps, and writing names on little diplomas. At the time I never left the constant cycle, of watching children go from hesitant little ones, to “Kindergarten ready”.
It wasn’t until I became a preschool parent that I began to see preschool graduation as a pausing moment. Our family began to question what our next educational steps were. My family felt very pulled to Christian schooling, but we also live in a great public school district that had the potential to connect us with more neighbors. I felt like the summer was full of ifs and buts!
During our time of questioning, we relied heavily on Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” God wanted our children at Christian school, and we wanted our children to always serve God. Looking back at it now, it seems like we made the decision when we first started questioning our choices. However, as a parent in that moment, it seemed like the world’s biggest decision.
Preschool graduation is a big milestone for both the children and their parents. For us it was the beginning of a big spiritual decision. For other’s it was finding a school that could provide the proper needs for their child. No matter what decision your family is looking at, I hope that you feel God’s presence on your journey.
Congratulations on your little one’s completion of preschool! If you have a specific Preschool Graduation prayer request, please leave it in the comments below and good luck on beginning that next stage with your child.
