Starting School

It's that time of year again! The leaves are changing, the weather is cooling down, and kids are heading back to school. If your child is starting school for the first time, you might be feeling a mix of emotions: excited for them to start this new adventure, proud of their accomplishment, and maybe a little bit nervous about sending them off into the world.

Here are a few tips to help you and your child make the most of their first year of school:

1. Get Organized

A good way to start the school year off on the right foot is to get organized. Help your child pick out a backpack that fits well and isn't too heavy, and make sure they have all the supplies they need for each class. 

You can also create a daily or weekly routine for them to follow so they know what to expect each day. This will help reduce any anxiety they might be feeling about starting school.

2. Talk About Their Day

When your child comes home from their first day of school, sit down with them and ask them about their day. What did they do in each class? Who are their new friends? What was the best part of their day? 

Talking to them about their experiences will help them process and remember all the new information they learned. It will also give you a chance to bond with your child and hear about their day.

3. Help Them With Homework

Homework can be challenging for any child, but it's especially difficult for those who are just starting to learn how to read and write. Offer to help your child with their homework, and make sure they have a quiet place to work where they won't be distracted. 

If they're struggling with a particular assignment, talk to their teacher about ways you can help at home. Together, you can come up with a plan to make sure your child is getting the most out of their education.

4. Enroll Them in an After-School Program

If you're looking for ways to enrich your child's school experience, consider signing them up for an after-school program. These programs offer a variety of activities, from art and music to sports and STEM, that can help your child explore their interests and develop new skills.

At Children's Learning Adventure, we offer a variety of after-school programs that are designed to help kids succeed in school and in life. Starting school can be a big adjustment, but with the right support, your child will be off to a great start!

4. Encourage New Hobbies

One of the best parts about starting school is that it gives children the opportunity to try new things. Encourage your child to join a club or sport or take up a new hobby. This can help them make friends, explore new interests, and build confidence. 

When children feel good about themselves, they're more likely to succeed in school. A new hobby can also be a great way to bond with your child and spend some quality time together.

5. Talk About Their Feelings

It's normal for children to feel nervous or anxious about starting school. Talk to your child about their feelings and let them know that it's okay to be scared sometimes. Reassure them that you'll be there to support them every step of the way. 

Every child is different, but with a little patience and encouragement, your child will adjust to their new school in no time.

It's important to stay positive and excited about your child's education, even if they're feeling a little bit overwhelmed. With your help, they'll be able to make the most of their first year of school and set themselves up for success in the years to come.


Starting school is a big milestone for any child, and with these tips, you can help your child make the most of their first year. With your support, they're sure to have a successful school year.

With Children's Learning Adventure, your child will have the opportunity to try new things, make friends, and explore their interests. After-school programs are a great way to enrich your child's school experience. With so many new experiences to choose from, your child is sure to find something they love!
