    Today we talk a lot about whether our children are getting too fast into the first grade of primary school, whether they are mature enough and will deal with all the new demands they are waiting for. The doubts about the maturity of children and the early entry into school arise primarily in parents, as they feel that today's system is not adapted to the age of children with whom they enter school. The main purpose of the research work was to investigate the expectations and feelings of children and their parents when entering children in elementary school. I was interested in what feelings and emotions children experience with the thought that in the autumn they will cross the threshold of the elementary school for the first time. I was also interested in what parents think about their children entering in the first grade and how they think that their children are experiencing it. The results showed that children's parents are experiencing increased stress and worries about school. They are much more insecure and in doubt than their children. On the oppositechildren enter the new world that awaits them with an pride and great curiosity. They are not afraid, even though this is a big step in their lives, as they will meet new people, they are waiting for new and more demanding tasks that they will have to face on their own. Above all, it is important that parents stand up to their children, help them in difficulties and, talk about school in a positive way. Cooperation between parents and school is also important, as we can help many children with this kind of education and provide them with the successful and easiest possible transition from preschool to school.
