A child’s first day at school is a day to remember for the rest of their lives.
You can help to make it a really happy one for them.
- Tell them about school
- Don’t use school or the teacher as a threat.
- They will like to have their new uniform and new bag when they begin. These help them identify more readily with the school and other children.
- Be Positive
On The Big Day
- Coming in…
- When you arrive at the classroom, be as casual as you can. They will meet the teacher and the other children and will be shown their chair.
- Hopefully he or she will be absorbed in their new surroundings. So having assured them you will be back to collect them, wish them goodbye and make your getaway without delay.
