Your child might feel nervous or anxious about the first day of school. At A Promising Tomorrow Early Care & Educational Center, we’ve seen kindergarten children jitter on school openings. If you have enrolled your little one at our preschool in Toledo, Ohio, here are some tips to calm your jittered child down:
- Connect school to home. Our daycare in Ohio offers facility tours before the term starts. Bring your child with you!
- Downplay the event. Your child may feel pressure from their first day in kindergarten. Don’t create too much of a fuss because that will only make your child feel more nervous.
- Read books about school together. Introduce them to characters who share similar experiences as them. Knowing that someone can relate to them will help ease their nerves. This practice also gives your child a headstart in their reading and comprehension skills.
- Minimize your anxiety. You may feel anxious to see your child upset and worried about how the day will go. But remember that your child will adjust to a new environment given enough time.
