kids are more prepared then we give them credit. they may be shy or something but that is normal..she will be fine and you may be surprised at how well she will be able to handle herself...
you are not alone in your feelings. they are normal and a part of accepting that your daughter is growing up

I know how you feel. I was very nervous especially because we choose all day K but she loves it! She can read and is so smart!!! During Christmas vacation she was bored and wanted to go to school!!! My daughter too is a picky eater and some days she doesn't eat much of anything and that makes her so crabby, but the teacher assures me she is not alone and if they were really hungry then they would eat more! So I have to let it go. Good luck I'm sure she will do just fine!!!

I was afraid too! My son started kindergarten this year and I had all the same fears. But, my son is doing great and learning so much. He rides the school bus everyday and loves that too. His only problem is that he is a picky eater and he doesn't like most things at school lunch. I let him bring his lunch from home once a week, but I'd rather he eat at school. I'm hoping that encourages him to at least try new things. And it has worked so far.

I'm going to be nervous when my son goes into 1st grade this fall too, but I know deep down that he will be fine and he loves to learn.
