Do you have a kid starting kindergarten? Then you’ll want to grab this free printable first day of school interview! It’s packed with fun questions that will make for an incredibly sweet keepsake!
My middle daughter T is starting Kindergarten this year… wow I can barely believe it as I write it! Sometimes I feel like the days are a slow struggle until bedtime, and yet my kids seem to be growing up too fast. I wish I could rewind the clock and relive those younger baby and toddler days. They’re sweeter to me now than they felt at the time ;).
But time marches on, the kids keep growing (as they should), and so I capture the memories in the little ways I can. I take pictures, make keepsake crafts with them, and just try to soak it all in every day.
I know so many moms feel the same way, and I’m guessing since you’re reading this you do too! So as part of my mission to capture my kid’s childhoods and help you do the same, I made this interview for that incredibly special milestone of starting kindergarten.
First Day of School Interview
I created this interview to capture all the details about your little one on their first day of kindergarten. From important info like the teacher’s name, to questions that record that little personality, this interview creates a completely adorable memory of your child on their first day of school.
The cute favorites list is always a hit with kindergartners, because they love to talk about their favorite things.
I especially love the spots for the child to write their own name and draw their own self portrait. Their writing and drawing will really improve over the school year, so this a great way to capture the cuteness before it’s gone, and to see that change as well.

UPDATE: I’ve also posted the first day of school interview for Grades 1-12 + preschool and pre-k! Click here for these grades: Back to School Interview
UPDATE 2: “A Drawing of Me” has been changed to “A Picture of Me”. This now matches the Last Day of School interviews and allows for either a drawing or a photo of your child.

[…] year I created the first day of Kindergarten interview and then the 1st to 8th grade interviews. Now with the first day of preschool and pre-k interviews, […]
I love these! I am just getting this started with my son in kindergarten. I am one of consistency and want everything to look the same. Is there anyway you will be making HS ones with the same format? I would love to finish out his keepsake box with this format!
Thanks Jessie! Sure I can make high school interviews as well, I’ll send you the link once they’re ready 🙂
Here’s the link to the high school interviews as well as the rest: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B46n_3xabPbJeWlyaGo1QldvRTQ Thanks for visiting Jessie!
Do you by chance have an editable version of this for Kindergarten? I just love it but would love to change it to A Picture of me instead of a drawing of me. Thanks so much!! Paula
Hi Paula, I don’t have an editable interview, but I changed the wording and emailed it to you 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting!
Hi Courtney, Do you have this for the last day of each grade as well? Thanks!! – Vanessa
Hi Vanessa, yes I do! I just shared them, you can find them here: https://iwatchthemgrow.com/printable-last-day-of-school-interview/ Thank you for visiting! 🙂
Thank you so much Courtney! I really appreciate it! They are so cute and my daughters love doing these! 🙂
I love, love, LOVE your interview printables. Quick question. For the First Day of School interview printables, could you possibly change A Drawing of Me to A Photo of Me? I’d really appreciate it!
Thanks so much!
Oops! I meant A Picture of Me…not A Photo of Me. This way the last day and first day interviews will look the same. Sorry about that.
Hi Jennifer, thank you for the suggestion! I have now changed the word “drawing” to “picture” on all of the first day interviews 🙂
Thank you so much! 🙂
