Prepare for School With the Right Uniform
Here are our top tips:
Buy shoes early. Help your child get used to their school shoes by wearing them around the house or to outings. Wearing the shoes in early will help avoid blisters. Then their play won’t be hindered as they make friends once they start school.
Opt for Velcro where possible. Buckles are not allowed in our uniform policy, so Velcro is an excellent option.
Encourage your child to learn to dress themselves by giving them opportunities to do so. Getting dressed themselves will help to reduce morning stress and increase your child’s confidence to be independent – if something happens at school and they need to change, they’ll be ready.
Buttons are tricky to undo, especially on the girls’ culottes. Help your child practise at home. When they are in a hurry to go to the bathroom, this practise will come in handy!
Expecting the unexpected
Prepare a change of clothes and underwear in your child’s bag in case of accidents. Even if your child is doing well at home, a new environment, like school, can bring new challenges. Your child will feel more confident if they know there are clothes in their bag if they have an unexpected accident.
A teacher will always be available to help, so your child is in good hands!
