6 TIPS FOR A LESS STRESSFUL FIRST DAY IN PRESCHOOL

PREPARE EARLY IN THE MORNING

This will depend on the school schedule of your child at pre-school. Remember, this will be their first day and you don’t want them to have tantrums. Of course, you don’t want to stress your child by rushing. So get your child up at a reasonable hour.

ARRIVE A BIT EARLY IN SCHOOL

Having your child a bit early in school allows her/him to settle and make himself/herself a bit comfortable. Your child will also have the time to see his/her teacher more time to make him/her more comfortable. Remember, the time of the teacher will be divided the moment other kids arrived.

BRING HER FAVORITE TOY AS A COMFORT OBJECT

This would depend on the school on what they allow, but whenever possible bring some comfort object for the child just to help her start in a new environment. The moment he/she becomes comfortable with the school he/she will just let go of the comfort object.

BE EXCITED FOR YOUR CHILD

It is normal for some kids to get anxious in a new environment. But when he/she sees you having a happy face she will surely feel the comfort and will help her cope with the new environment.

STAY BUT DON’T HOVER

Most preschools allow parents to stay in the classroom on the first day or first few days of school. If your kid manages to be on her own just stay outside the room. However, if not you can stay but don’t hover. Just maintain a clinging distance to let your child knew that you are around, yet allowing him or her to explore new things. As your child feels more comfortable in school, gradually vanish in the background to allow the teacher take over and do her things.

ALWAYS APPEAR TO BE CONFIDENT AND CHEERFUL WHEN SAYING GOODBYES

Almost all preschools have an area for parents and nannies that are relatively away from the classroom. When it’s time to say goodbye to your child, always make sure that you appeared confident and cheerful. Just let him/her know when will you be back or simply said you’re just around the corner.
