Yes, believe it or not it's already back to school season! Enrollment has been filling up very quickly at Star Montessori as many parents are ready to start their children in our Montessori or After-School Programs. In this week's blog we've got some general back to school tips for children of all ages!
1. Tour the School - Typically prospective parents will visit the school for a tour before registering their child. If you haven't already done so just reach out to one of us in the office and we'd be happy to show you around!
2. Ease into it - Children who are new to pre-school typically take 2 weeks to fully adjust to the new schedule and routine. Easing the child into the program and the school makes things easier. Pick up your child earlier the first few days and slowly get them to your normal schedule by the end of the second week.
3. Meet the Teacher - During this time of year we have classroom changes. New students come in and some students move up in class. This is a great opportunity to introduce yourself to the new teacher and meet them!
4. Adjust their Schedule - If you have a few weeks before your child starts school start working on their sleep schedule. Get them to start sleeping earlier so they can be ready to go, and not tired, when they get back in the swing of things!
I hope this list helps you all get ready for the school year! We can't wait to see all of our students these next few weeks!
