Tips for Parents: Preparing Your Child for School


Part of parenting is sending your child to school. But the first day won’t be easy for you and for them. You may have seen how much a child cries when separated from their parents for the first time or you may have experienced it firsthand from your previous child so, it is important to prepare them to avoid this from happening.

As a leading daycare center in Potomac, Maryland, we are experts when it comes to child care. Allow us to share our expertise in preparing your child for their first day of school and reducing their jitters and anxiety. Here are some simple steps:

  • If possible, contact the daycare center or preschool ahead of time to schedule a tour. It is important for children to know what to expect so it is good to let them roam around and have a feel of the school environment. They can also meet with their teacher ahead.
  • If you have a little budget, buy them a few school supplies. Take them with you on a little shopping and allow them to choose some things like a notebook, pencil case, bag, or lunch box, among others. This will surely get them excited.
  • Before the first day of school, make sure they are prepared. So, practice waking them up in the morning to pretend to go to school. Let them take a bath, eat breakfast, and get dressed. This way, they can be ready.
