Looking For A School In Durham Region of Ontario

Its That Time of Year Again.  Help Prepare Your Child For Back To School

  • Re-establish school routines by helping the kids get up and dressed at the same time every morning.
  • Eat meals and snacks around the same time as when the kids are in school.
  • Try and get the kids out the door around the same time as during the school year. Try going to the park, or go for a walk so that they are used to being ready to leave for the bus or walk to school.  Don’t forget to re-establish bedtime routines again.
  • Nurture Independence by having your child organize their school backpack,  practice writing your child’s name and tying shoe laces
  • Designate a place where school things like backpacks and lunch boxes go to avoid last minute morning rushes.
  • Setup time and place to do homework.
  • Plan after school activities or programs
  • Lineup someone to care for the child if he or she is ill.
  • Meet the child’s teacher and about their approach to Homework.
  • Sit down with your child and create a schedule for homework, TV Time, Video, Playtime and Bedtime Routine.
