20 Dec Preparing Your Preschooler for School After the Holidays
Christmas has come and gone, and it’s time to head back to preschool! It takes a while to get into the swing of things when it comes to going back to school. This season, help your preschooler get back into their routine with ease!
- Gradually wake your preschooler up earlier! By pushing up wake up time little by little, your preschooler won’t even realize that they’re getting out of bed earlier each morning. This way, when school starts back up, your preschooler will be used to getting up earlier and in turn will have a more productive morning at home and at school.
- Take care of time consuming tasks early in the break! Does your preschooler need a new pair of tennis shoes? Does their closet need to be cleaned out? If so, take care of these things early on in the break so you don’t have to rush to get things finished before the first day back.
- Make a craft for your preschooler’s teacher! Getting back into the school groove can be just as hard for educators. Get your little one excited to head back to school and see their teacher by making a heartfelt craft with them. Ideas include a homemade hot chocolate mix, a gift box of candy and popcorn for a movie night, or even a new pair of gloves for cold winter days.
By planning ahead, your preschooler can easily be set up for success in 2019. Let these ideas inspire you to make this return to school the best yet!
