Easy Back-to-School Guide for Parents and Guardians
The back-to-school season brings challenges and mixed emotions for parents and kids alike. To ensure this time is exciting for your children, Explore Learning has crafted this simple back-to-school guide for parents and guardians.
Dealing with Separation Anxiety
The first day of school can be an emotional rollercoaster for parents and children. To ease separation anxiety:
Visit the School: Take your child for a school visit to familiarise them with the environment.
Positive Reinforcement: Highlight the exciting aspects of school – new friends, fun activities, and learning adventures.
Establish a Routine: Start a school routine a week or two in advance to help kids adjust.
Stay Calm: Children pick up on parents’ emotions, so stay calm and reassuring.
Goodbye Rituals: Create a special goodbye ritual to make parting easier.
Autumn Term: Starts in the first week of September, with a mid-October half-term break. Ends in mid-December.
Spring Term: Usually begins in the first week of January, with a mid-February half-term break. Ends in March or early April.
Summer Term: Starts in mid to late April, with a late May half-term break. Ends in July.
Always double-check specific dates with your child’s school, especially for private schools, or the government website.
