School Information (Academic)
- Tip #1: Parting with your young child can be difficult especially for first-time parents, try not to let your child see that you are worried. Your child will settle faster if you drop the child off, give him/her a big hug and walk away saying “I’ll see you soon!”. Your confidence in sending them off happily gives them confidence in their new environment. You can then wait in the hallway or outside the school and the teachers call you if there is any issue. You can stay with the child in the classroom on the first few days, reducing the amount of time you spend with them. By the end of Week 1, it is recommended that the parent does not enter the class with the student, but just drops them off at the door.
- Tip #2: It is recommended to leave a favourite toy or one of your belongings with a child to make them feel more secure in the new place.
- Tip #3: Some children may find parting and coming to school so stressful that they get tummy aches or are very tearful in the mornings. If this happens, help your child overcome their anxiety by telling them what they will do in class. Anxiety and reluctance can be about not knowing what to expect. Let your child also know what you will be doing while they are away and be sure to pick them up on time. It usually takes about a week for the child to settle in.
