Transition can be tough for all of us—especially for children. While the back-to-school season is exciting, it can also compound feelings of anxiety or nervousness, with new routines, new teachers, and maybe even a new school.
Luckily, we can get a headstart on the prep at home and send them off to school feeling confident. With our School Encouragement Kit, the whole family can load up on social-emotional tools before school and you can send them reminders of encouragement each day to help ease the transition.
Sloth and his board book, “Sloth’s First Day of School”: “Sloth’s First Day of School” helps children and families see how routines make us feel loved, safe, and supported. The story also illustrates to children what a daily school day routine looks like and normalizes the nervous feelings children can experience when starting school.
Lunchbox Love Notes:While your child welcomes new routines into their life, make it a routine of yours to send them to school with a daily Lunchbox Love Note. In the middle of their day, you can remind your child they are loved and supported, no matter how far apart you may be.
