Getting Settled Into a New Preschool

Posted on 07-28-2017

Grab your backpacks and lunch boxes - the new school year is about to begin! The first day of school is inevitably nerve wracking for any child. New teachers, new classmates, and lots more to learn. If your preschooler is displaying signs that she’s nervous for her first day back to school, don’t fret! We have a few tips to help you ease her nerves just in time.

Discuss the big day

If your child knows what to expect, she’ll be much more confident going into her first day of school. Spend some time leading up to the big day discussing what your child’s routine will most likely be each day at school. Play time, lunch, and time spent learning about math, science, and reading can be expected in your child’s curriculum. Once your preschooler has mentally prepared for her new class, she’ll be super excited for her first day.

Plan ahead

There are a few things you can plan ahead of time to help your child get excited for the new school year. First, you can encourage your child to plan a fun outfit for her first day back at school so she feels confident and comfortable heading into the day. Additionally, packing a special lunch (with a sweet, personal note included) will remind your little one that home isn’t too far away and put her in a cheerful mood for the rest of the day.

Meet the teacher

If at all possible, it’s a great idea to visit the school ahead of time and even meet with your child’s new teacher. The teacher can then get to know your child, learn any important details you want to share, and answer any questions you may have. Additionally, your child will be able to familiarize herself with this new learning environment and will feel much more comfortable as the first day approaches.

There is no exact formula for eradicating your child’s fears, but there are ways to subdue them. You can never over-prepare when it comes to the first day of school, so do whatever you feel necessary to get your little one ready! One last tip? Send a sweet note in your child’s lunchbox to remind her that she isn’t too far from home.
