Starting kindergarten?

They are starting full day kindergarten where I am this coming September 2012. My second child will have to do it. I'm dreading it because she is home with me 24/7 and there is no preschool here so she has nothing to prepare her for being gone from me. She's only 3 right now but the situation won't change by the time she goes. I know academically she will be ready to go because she's smart but I don't think she will socially be ready to go since there's no preschool to prepare her for it. Any suggestions anyone?

What about putting her in a daycare for a couple days a week instead? If you're doing it to prepare her for school, it's no different than paying for preschool, and you can use the opportunity to do something for yourself.

Just keep bringing her around other kids as much as possible. Is there a playgroup in your area? The one in my town had a few similarities to the local preschool.
