Recognising preschool graduation with a gift will show the child the importance of education and accomplishing goals. Stores carry toys and trinkets for young children, but consider the gift's potential meaning and then shop. Think of gifts the child will use or see daily as a reminder of your love.

Books build and enhance the skills a child needs for school. Good literature makes children goal oriented, notes Scholastic. Look for books that focus on setting and reaching goals. Write an inscription that connects the preschool graduation to the book's theme. Since strong reading skills are a determining factor in academic success, any topic will suffice. Children's literature sparks youngsters' imaginations, feelings and emotions. It instils in children a desire to read, expanding their perception of the world around them as well as their sensitivity. Look for age-appropriate books covering topics ranging from monster trucks to cars, princesses to 18th-century immigrants and firemen to doctors.
Give the preschooler an item he can reminisce about as he grows. Find a knick-knack that represents a young graduate, or a wall plaque with a motivational quote. Start him on a collection, such as coins or stamps with a rare piece.
Have the child's name embroidered on a pillowcase, blanket or stuffed animal, or give the child bookends. If desired, give a jewellery piece or jewellery box. Memory boxes, chests and picture frames also make nice gifts.
Give graduates of religious preschools a child bible book, sing-a-long CD, or a prayer card. Religious stores also sell toys that correlate to biblical stories.
Preschoolers are old enough to appreciate board games and puzzles, as they satisfy your child's competitive urges and the desire to master new skills. Stores carry a variety for different interests and ability levels. Find computer games and reading programs as well. Finally, get tickets to a baseball game or ballet.
Give the gift of your time. Take the preschooler to a movie, museum or park. Go to a creation pottery store and build a masterpiece together. Spend time reading together, as reading with your young preschooler is the perfect way to respond to her constant quest for new knowledge. Designate a "fun night": Order pizza, and host art-and-craft time. Paint pictures, glue noodles and cut shapes.
