Are you ready for the first day of school? The first day of school is a big deal for kids and parents. Getting back into a school routine can be tough, especially for children who start at a new school. We’ve put together a few essential tips for the first day of school so you and your child can have a successful start to the school year.
Visit the school or go to an open house
Preparation is the best way to minimize first-day jitters and stress. Before the school year starts, take your child to an open house, orientation, or a tour of the school. Perhaps even ask to shadow a class. This is particularly helpful if your child is starting at a new school. By visiting the building beforehand, your child can familiarize herself or himself with the schedule and routine, which may boost confidence and help the transition seem less scary.
Prep everything the night before
The morning of the first day of school should be as calm as possible, so taking the time to prep the night before will help make the morning routine run smoothly. You can prepare things such as:
check The school outfit
check School lunch
check Book bags
