Getting ready for kindergarten and school

Early Childhood News

Your child may need extra comfort and support as well as plenty of rest in the first few weeks. Familiarity with the school environment and routines will contribute significantly to a smooth transition and can reduce the stress that change may bring.

Check out Donna’s top tips:

  • Talk to your child about what school will be like – talk through lunch times, drop off times and about how exciting school is.
  • Involve your child in the preparation for school. Choose a school bag and lunch box together, encourage your child to choose some of the food items for their lunch and get them to help you prepare their lunch box.
  • Provide lots of opportunities for your child to practice getting ready for school – trying on school shoes, socks and uniforms, using their lunch box and packing their school bag.
  • Share information about your child with the school and the teachers.
