Starting School Printable Booklet
Those first days of preschool, kindy, reception, or big school can be anxiety-inducing for many children and parents. To help relieve some of the tension of their big day, we’ve put together this free activity booklet that you can print off and complete with your child.
Researchers have discovered that the more prepared someone is for a new experience, the less daunting that experience is.
This free activity booklet will help you walk your child through their first days, helping them be prepared for what is to come. Use it as a foundation for a conversation about all the new things they’ll do when they go to pre-school or school. Tell them about all the children to play with, the bell that will ring, the classroom and the chairs and tables, and every little detail you can think of.
Avoidance reinforces anxiety. But when we move towards something, explore it, and get curious, we build anticipation. It might be nervous anticipation, but it’s still anticipation. This booklet is yours to help build that positive momentum in the lead up to facing those first-day fears.
