Helping Children Transition Back to School

Transitioning back to school in the COVID-19 era can present many challenges for parents and children.  Many parents have reported that learning from home has given their child the opportunity to work at their own pace.

  • Reassure your child that it is safe to go to school.  Children have been told that learning from home is to keep them safe and healthy.  Some children may worry about returning to school.
  • Prepare your child for changes to usual school processes.  Talk about upcoming changes, ask your child what will make their transition back to school easier.
  • Re-establish normal routines in the lead up to school.  Bedtime routines, packing school bag.  Don't forget to allow more time than usual to get ready.
Remember after school children may be feeling more fatigued and may need to spend some quality time with family members.
