STARTING KINDER

Starting Kindergarten

This may be your child's first major step outside the home and so they will need time to settle in and feel comfortable with new people and the environment.


Also, the first few weeks can be the most exhausting for your child for the following reasons:

  • They may feel overwhelmed by so many children all moving about making noise
  • They may be overwhelmed by the many new activities
  • They may be worried about visiting a strange toilet
  • They may be overcome with fatigue caused by the hot weather
  • They may be over-excited because of a new and different routine
  • Try to give your child extra support and understanding during this period of adjustment.
