Back To School 2021 - 2022

The first day of school is an exciting milestone in your child's life. Your child is embarking on a journey that will lead them on many roads of discovery and learning. As wonderful as this new experience may be, it can also be quite stressful for the young child. New situations can change, and at times, be unsettling for all of us. For many children this may be their first experience of separation from parents or caregivers at home. It is common for even the most outgoing child to be anxious on the first day of school.

We have provided a few suggestions for assisting your child during this time. Remember the preschool staff will be available to provide support and assistance; making your child's first school days happy days.

  • Prepare your child for the new school experience by explaining what to expect. Answer all questions directly and honestly.

  • Convey a positive attitude. Young children are aware of your feelings. Your enthusiasm will assure the child that school can be a fun and exciting place.

  • Establish a routine involving both the night before a school day as well as morning preparation. Rituals and routines will add predictability and are comforting in unfamiliar situations.

  • Clearly state to your child where you will be and when you will return. It may also be helpful to discuss what will happen when you are reunited.

  • Maintain a clear goodbye routine. All children are encouraged to come into the classroom independently, hang up belongings, wash their hands and start their routine with staff support.
