Back To School Tips

School is just around the corner. An exciting time for kids but often a stressful one for parents. To make the transition as smooth as possible, we have shared some tips below that might make life a bit easier.


Make a fun morning chart

Make the morning routine fun by creating a chart for the kids. List out all the activities that need to be done, for e.g. brush teeth, get dressed, pack your school bag, and mark them as completed with fun stickers to keep them engaged and hopefully out to school quick!

Plan meals

Alleviate some stress and last minute panic by planning out the kids lunches for the week. Prevent running out of essentials like yoghurts, butter and bread by stocking up in advance. This can also extend to dinner and breakfast while everyone is getting used to routine again.

Get on the school schedule

Before they start back at school, it's a good idea to get them used to school hours again. Getting up in the morning and going to bed at the same time they would for school will help them ease back into more structure.

Dedicated homework space

If possible, create a space where your kids do their homework each day after school. Make sure it's a space with little distractions but also a nice space they might actually enjoy. Give them fun stationary to use, stick some of their art on the wall and any other small additions that might make it somewhere they like spending time in.
