This year, your child might get the chance to spend a morning at the school that they will be attending next year.
Some schools have one orientation day – others have three or four
Orientation days are important for your child because the more familiar they are with the people and places that will be part of their school life, the less overwhelmed they are likely to feel on day one.
The day will not only give your child a chance to start to feel like a ‘big school kid’ but it will also give teachers important opportunities to observe your child and to briefly meet you.
In the 3 minute video below, I explain what to do…and what NOT to do… on your child’s Orientation Day.
I hope this information will help your child to thrive at school next year.
