Staying focused in preschool

What should you do if your child cannot sit and focus like other Preschoolers? It's really important that you find a school that meets your child's needs and interests. When a child is interested in something, you'll find that they are able to focus on it much more. However, if they are still not focusing on the things they are interested in, it's very helpful to talk to the teachers about is there something else that is going on and if he needs to be looked out by an outside resource, for the reason he is not focusing.
