Acclimating Your Preschooler to a New Class

Posted on 07-28-2017

With first day jitters, making new friends, and meeting their teacher, preschoolers can feel a little overwhelmed when starting pre-k for the first time. Luckily, there are many great ways to help acclimate your child to a new class and make him feel right at home. Try one of these ideas to help your little one get ready for his first day!

Back to school teacher gifts

As both an authority figure and an unfamiliar face, sometimes the teacher can be the most intimidating part of a new classroom for a child. Help them get acquainted by having your child pick out a back to school gift for his teacher. He can write a card and even draw a picture as well. Have your child gift this to his teacher, and watch their new relationship bloom before your eyes.

First of the year party

Some teachers or preschools will start the new year with a first of the year party as a way to get everyone familiar with each other. Don’t skip this event if you don’t have to! Enjoy the party and make sure that your little one makes some friends while you get to know everyone. If the school doesn’t have its own party, consider throwing your own! A trip to the zoo or an end-of-summer pool party could be the perfect way to get the class together.

Getting to know the parents

As a way for you to help your child make new friends, make some of your own by getting to know the parents of your child’s new classmates. Most parents are thrilled to get to know other parents and may even be willing to start a carpool or weekly get-together. Soon enough, your little ones will be play-dating while you share parenting stories over coffee.

Any of these ideas are sure to help both you and your little one get acclimated into your new setting. With extra encouragement, your child will be confident and comfortable heading into the very first day of school!
