It’s the new normal and as restrictions ease, classes in schools will soon be back! I know that parents are very anxious about sending their kids back to face-to-face classes but here are some things you can do at home to get your child ready!

Practice Good Hygiene

Good hygiene really starts at home. The safety protocols that the Health Department had put in place are very important for the safety of everyone. Washing hands is one of them. Make sure that you teach your child how to properly wash their hands.

You can make sure that they enjoy this by singing a song that lasts for at least 20 seconds. This way, your child can wash their hand thoroughly and squeeze in a singing session too.

School Mock-up at Home

If it is your child’s first time going to school, it might be helpful to recreate a classroom at home. This way, they will know what to expect in school and will be familiar with what to do.

This is also very helpful for preschoolers. With a classroom set-up or a study corner at home, they will be able to identify what they are supposed to do. 

Adjust your current routine

Kids thrive better with a routine. Make sure you start a “school routine” way before their actual classes start. You can do this by creating a strict bedtime, wake time, study time, and playtime.

As you go on every day, your child will remember the routine and practice it at school as well.

Health Check

This tip is also for the parents. Since we are still in the pandemic, it is important for parents to make sure that their kids are well before sending them back to school.

Flu, Foot & Mouth Disease and other illnesses are easily passed on at schools so make sure your child is well before sending them to school. This protects them and other children from different viruses that they may catch.
