What are some of the big differences between teaching preschool and teaching kindergarten?? I am currently teaching Kindergarten and am considering switching grades. Preschool is one option that could be opening up a lot in my area! The state passed a grant program last year where districts could apply to get free four year old preschool brought into their district. My current district has the program and many other districts in the area will be getting it this coming school year. I am trying to decide whether or not preschool would be something I would be interested in! I don't have a lot of experience in preschool (mainly field experience from college) so I am curious just HOW different it would be. I'm kind of looking for the main differences and what kinds of things the kids do and how the kids act. How long is your day? Do you have AM and PM? What kinds of activities/academics do you do? Roughly how many kids do you have? Do you do home visits...if so what do you do?? How much paper work to fill out? These are couple of my questions...but please feel free to share more if you'd like!! Thank you!
