Preparing Your Child for The First Day of School

  • 13 June 2024

Whether it’s their first time or just returning after a break, children often feel anxious about the first day of school. Here are a few tips to help your child prepare for this important day, and how Oakridge International School supports this transition:

Visit the school:

To help your child feel comfortable in their new environment, take them on a school tour. Show them the classroom, playground, and other key areas. Familiarity with the surroundings can ease their nerves and make the first day less intimidating.

Take Your Child for School Shopping:

Boost your child’s excitement by letting them pick out new school supplies. From uniforms and books to fun stationery and backpacks, shopping together can turn nervous anticipation into eager excitement.

Meet the Teacher:

Arrange a meeting with the teacher before school starts. This helps your child see the teacher as a friendly and supportive figure. If possible, meeting some future classmates can also be reassuring.

Include a Reward/Surprise:

Pack a special treat in their lunchbox or plan a fun activity for after school. Knowing there’s a reward waiting can make your child more enthusiastic about the school day.

Encourage Them to Make Friends Before School:

Encourage your child to meet other kids who will be attending the same school. Playdates or community events can help them form friendships that make the first day more enjoyable and less lonely.

Oakridge Approach:

Oakridge International School ensures a smooth transition for new students by offering personalized school tours, organized meet-and-greet sessions with teachers, community events for making friends, and a well-structured curriculum that meets the needs of every student. By providing a supportive and engaging environment, Oakridge helps children feel excited and confident about starting school.
