Starting School:

Your child’s first day at school will be very exciting. To make it a calm and pleasant experience, your attitude is important. Your child will react according to your feelings so it is important to be happy and confident.

You can prepare your child to adjust to school by:

  • giving your child responsibility and independence – dressing, managing the toilet, eating, staying overnight with relatives or friends, playing with other children, packing away toys, choosing books from the library.
  • being positive about your child’s abilities. Self-esteem is a vital ingredient to success. Encourage your child to try new things, praise successes and encourage trying again. Many skills require practice and time.  Display artwork on fridge and in their bedrooms.
  • establishing a morning routine – arrive on time with lunch, homework and excursion notes etc. prior to school bells. (See school routine)
