    Consistency, keep the same routine when you say bye. I always wait for my son to wave through window before I leave. As he’s going in, if he seems uneasy I say “quick, run to the window and wave” and he seems to snap out of it.

    My Grand-Daughter has just started Reception class in September. Her parents took her on twotaster days to the school plus attended the Summer Fair. School gave her a “starter pack” where she could write about her family and interests to share at the start of the school term. Her Mummy and Daddy also gradually began to tell her about her new school day, the activities she would be doing, school meals and new friends. By the time she started school she was so excited and settled in really well.

  74. Tracy Newton says:

    I stick to a strict bedtime routine to prevent tiredness. I also give them plenty of time to relax and switch off from the school day and after school activity clubs

  75. jules eley says:

    make sure you decide on a routine your both happy with so they know what they are doing and are less stressed.

  76. Jodie harvey says:

    A well established routine, especially bedtime! Plenty of sleep and a decent breakfast. we always do homework together and talk about their day and any future trips/events happening

  77. On the first day hanging around can make it worse. If you know other parents or get to know others in the area that are starting have a few playdates so they know someone there. Also pack clean spare pants an accident is imminent till they get to know the place.

    I take a similar tract to Vosene in that I go in very soft and gentle with questioning them how they got on as children tend to clam up in the first week or so…then I try to whip up as much ‘lather’ or should I say laughter as possible – it’s the best cue for nerves! x
