' Miss Hayhoe, who has spent the Summer teaching other luadergartaa and primary teachers, says some schools make a preview easy. Some plan .visit (or next year's kindergarten classes end their toothers so they can see a class to action, i Some have a ' registration day, with . no class, when mothers and children meet the teacher and see the room, ' . then go home together. Others stagger the entrance dates, bringing 4n a lew children at a time for several days. -. , If there Is no suck arrangement, parenta can at least show a child the achool, .,. Miss Hayhoe describee a . general first day routine . which . aha says the child might be told about ' . She takes her children Into the classroom a few at a time, beginning with the inore .mature.
