Preschool is often the first investment parents will make in their child's education. From choosing the right program to coping with separation anxiety, "Smart Start" helps parents identify quality programs that will provide preschoolers the best opportunity for a successful learning experience. Combining the expertise of psychologists, preschool educators, and pediatricians with the experiences, stories, and insights of parents who have successfully navigated this early journey with their children, "Smart Start" answers many of the most frequently asked questions regarding preschool education. With a foreword by Marianne Neifert, M.D. (Dr. Mom), "Smart Start" provides parents with a clear appreciation of the goals of early childhood education and shows how artwork, free play, storytime, and recess all encourage and develop a child's intellectual, social, and physical growth.

The move from babyhood into preschool is a big transition for parents and little children. Smart Start by Marian Edelman Borden (In Addition to Tuition and Mom's Guide to Raising a Good Student) will lead the anxious, the reluctant, and the ignorant parent of a pre-preschool child to serenity, eagerness, knowledge--and a good preschool. Smart Start clearly explains the differences in preschool curriculum, gives parents a detailed time line of procedures for finding the right preschool, and explains the process of getting both parent and child ready for the beginning of the little one's school career. Keep this book around even after the preschool has been selected and the first day is over: Borden's guides to development, childhood illnesses, and kindergarten readiness make Smart Start an excellent and thorough resource.
