1) .Your little one might, of course, be a wee bit nervous at the thought of his going to school and being without you for the very first time. So it is very necessary that you talk to him about his feelings and also enlighten him about the school timings along with imbibing within him the excitement by making him learn about the variety of things he can do in school.
2).It is mandatory for you to visit the school at least once to take a good look at his new classroom, speak to his class teacher and also make sure the teacher has at least two of your contact numbers in case of any emergency.
3).If your child is suffering from some health issue, for example, he needs an inhaler, then acquaint the class teacher about it and also stick on some tags on the inhaler box, with the required instructions on it, in case it might be required in the school.
