Back to School Countdown

A schedule for parents and families.

It’s never too early to start planning for your child’s first day in school or child care or for him to return to school after the summer or a break. There are many things you can do ahead of time to help the transition to school, preschool or child care be a happy time for you and your child. Begin talking to your child well in advance of the time for school to start. Be optimistic and use a happy voice when you talk about school, preschool or child care in your child’s presence. Tell him about the things he will get to do at school and the fun he will have playing with friends.
