The countdown to school begun! The first day can often be mixed with anxiety and enjoyment for both parents and children. However, your child may still be too anxious to leave you for their first day back at preschool. It is important to learn how to get ready for school after a break, especially when dealing with these emotions. In this article, we will be reviewing a few of the best back to school tips for preschool parents. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get going!
Warm Your Child Up to School
One of the best ways to help your child settle back into school is to have them visit the school a few days before their first day. Most preschools have visiting days, so your child can explore the school with the comfort of their parents. This is also a good time to discuss their first day and talk to their new teachers.
Start Their School Routine
Summer schedules are much different than the school schedules. There’s no doubt you can start early to get you and your child back in the habit of things. This means getting up earlier and going to bed early as well. This will help get your child adjusted to their school schedule, with a less toll on their bodies than not preparing at all.
Make a Special Goodbye Ritual
There’s no doubt your child will be upset when you leave them at school for the first time. You can develop a special goodbye routine with your child to make it more fun! Try the following: Kiss hug, wave goodbye. High five and blow each other a kiss. Leave notes in your child’s backpack for them to find throughout the day.
