Back to School Dubai: Some Tips for Nursery Children
Returning to the classroom after a holiday may cause feelings of excitement and apprehension for both children and parents alike. As with any change to a child’s routine, a good attitude and preparation to remove surprises is important to children positive about the new school term (regardless of age). Here are some tips for keeping jitters to a minimum and smiles to the max.
Spend time with your children talking about what the first school day may be like, what time the day starts, the name of the teacher, who will collect them from school, and so on.
Start a back-to-school routine that includes a return to term time sleeping patterns
If possible schedule a school visit before term starts. Most schools and nurseries will welcome your efforts to ease your children into a routine
Let your children feel in control of the process by allowing them to make purchase decisions regarding clothing or lunch boxes. It’s okay if your child chooses something you would not.
