Here are some tips that will help parents to make their child’s experience better.
Prepare the child for longer hours
With sudden changes; the routine life of most parents, especially children, is disturbed. It is seen that most children are not “used to” spending long hours in school.
Parents should start preparing children for this change in advance by changing their routine or putting them in activities that call for longer hours of engagement.
Talk to them
Sharing your own experience, letting them know how things are going to be in school, will definitely prepare them in advance and make them comfortable.
Give them tips on how to make new friends, how to be safe in school and ask them what they would like to do in primary school.
Attend orientation session
Orientation sessions are where the parents and children are explained about the school environment, introduced to teachers and facilities available. It is a great opportunity for children to acclimatize with the school environment, other students, teachers, classroom, play facilities, etc which will make your child more excited about the first day at Schools in Noida.
Don’t show them your Nervousness
More than the children, parents themselves are worried about how their little one will manage alone in the bigger world but don’t let your child know about this anxiety. Make sure that you sound excited and give assurance to them that they will enjoy their primary school and make new friends.
Let them Choose
Let your child choose their bag, bottles, tiffins, pencil and drawings kits and other new accessories that will make them feel excited about the new beginning along with boosting their confidence.
At many primary schools, teachers offer a smooth transition to new joiners; they are assigned new buddies, shorter classes for a few days in the beginning, fun activities are planned to offer an enjoyable start to the students.
Take the example of Global Indian International School which is one of the top international schools in Noida. The primary year’s program in GIIS is designed to be a joyful experience for students where their physical and mental growth is accelerated. The teacher helps students in academic and non-academic activities and makes sure that information passed to them is measured and engaging. The academic teaching methodology in GIIS is related to the concept of rising higher and going deep which gives children a good balance of imagination and understanding.
