Are Preschool Graduation Ceremonies Over the Top?

More and more preschools are holding graduation ceremonies with all the Pomp and Circumstance. Is this a good thing?

Nationally known Psychotherapist Dr. Robi Ludwig says letting preschoolers where a cap and gown and walk in a graduation ceremony can send a positive message, “But, I think it’s important for parents to underscore that this will be the first of many milestones,” she said.

Some parents think having a graduation ceremony for children that young is a bit much, kind of like giving a kid a trophy whether they win or lose. “I think it’s kind of cute to have a cap and gown and there’s something kind of nice, kind of making this event significant and saying, hey you did a great thing, you’re graduating and moving onto the next level,” Dr. Ludwig said, adding, “It’s also important for parents to underscore that this will be the first of many milestones.”

Dr. Ludwig said if a child realizes that it’s good to celebrate in achieving something and it helps them to look forward to achieving other great, significant milestones that they’ll achieve in their life, than that’s a positive. “If they think that they could just lay back after graduation and not try anymore, that would certainly be a negative, although I don’t think that that would definitely happen.

Is it too much Pomp and Circumstance? Dr. Ludwig said, “Well, maybe, but does it have to be a bad thing? I don’t think so.”
