Starting a new school

Monday, 12 July 2010

Written by : DoctorNDTV Team

  • Your child may need some extra support if he is starting a new school. Talk with your child about his feelings, both his excitement and his concerns about the new school.
  • Visit the school with your child in advance of the first day. Teachers and staff are usually at school a few days before the children start. Peek into your child's classroom, and if possible, meet the teacher and principal.
  • Try to have your child meet a classmate before the first day so they can get acquainted and play together, and so your child will have a friendly face to look for when school begins.
  • Don't build up unrealistic expectations about how wonderful the new school will be, but convey a general sense of optimism about how things will go for your child at the new school.
