Preparing Preschoolers For Transition With The Pica Preschool App + Giveaway

Since we homeschool my kids are typically with me through out the day unless it’s a homeschool co-op or other class we attend which are only for a short time. I have noticed that my preschooler is having a difficult time separating from me and always wants to go with me. That is not always possible.  Next year we are joining an all day homeschool class where he will see me less for the one day each week. He will be going into his own classroom while I alternate classrooms for my other children. Knowing this ahead of time I am trying to help him cope. I recently found a wonderful app called Pica Preschool which is a great resource preparing him for the transition to come.
