Going back to nursery can bring both anxiety and excitement for your children. They look forward to returning to their friends but worry about leaving you and the fun they’ve had at home.
Here is a list of things you can do to help boost your child’s confidence before they head back to Apricot Nursery:
- Remind your child about all the fun they had in their last year, recapping notably fun days in the last term. If they’re just starting, tell them about all the fun they’ll have and friends that they will make.
- Take your child shopping for back to school supplies. Let them pick out things like their own backpack or coat; this will help them to feel comfortable when returning.
- Ask them about their worries, and address them head on. Perhaps reassure them by telling them about what you remember from when you went, what worried you, and how different it was to what you’d thought it would be.
Try these tips to put your child’s mind at ease, helping them to make their first day back a good one.
