The first day of school can be an exciting or stressful experience depending on the child (and the parent!). Children pick up on the reactions of the trusted adults in their lives, so stay upbeat and confident and your child will do the same.

Your child may, understandably, feel a little sad and scared, and may act out when it comes time to say goodbye. However, in our experience, the child settles down soon after the parent leaves. Parents are always welcome to call the school to find out how their child is doing during the day.
