Helping Your Child Transition from Nursery to Big School

Change can be difficult for children to deal with, especially when that means leaving familiar faces behind and meeting new ones. The transition from nursery to big school can be difficult which is why we have paired up with a nursery in Islington to share a few tips.

Potty Training

Making sure that your child is potty trained before starting school will help to make the transition smoother. We recommend starting at least a few months before your little one starts school if they aren’t already, so that they have plenty of time to get used to it and don’t feel pressured.

Role Play the School Day

Acting out tasks like getting changed for PE and tidying up can help to make them seem less alien and allow your child to settle in better. For this, you can use puppets to put on a show or act out the roles yourselves.

Getting to Know the School Environment

Before your child starts school, there will be plenty of opportunities for them to visit and meet their teachers. Before attending an open day, encourage your child to think about anything that they might want to ask their new teacher so that they can air out any worries beforehand.

Take Them on The School Run

If you have other children already attending the same school, taking them to pick them up in the afternoon can help to create a sense of familiarity. This will make the transition seem less daunting and stressful. 

Tell a Story About Big School

A storybook can tell a child what they need to know about big school, relieve their worries and do it in the most engaging way. They can get your child excited to start and there are so many books that are available that you can use.
