Preparing your child for their first day at school

A child’s first day at school can be extremely daunting for the child and the parents. It may be the first time that your child has been away from you for a long period of time throughout the day or just the fact that they seem to be growing up fast and will not be learning surrounded by children of all ages.

Preparing your child for their first day at school will not only make them feel better but will also help you relax and put your mind at rest. Most schools have new starting children in for taster days a number of times before they actually attend as a registered pupil. This allows them to get a feel for the school day and get to know some of the members of staff along with other pupils that they may be in class with.

Talk to your child about what they can expect and ask them if they have any questions about the school before they start. IF your child has any concerns, try to discuss it with them and make sure that they understand the answers.
