Settling into Nursery without tears
Our Nursery teacher Mr Juan wrote an article for the International School Parent Magazine on how our school supports families settling into Nursery.
The first day in nursery is a big step for young children. It can be an emotional time not only for the children but also for their parents. This problem will be potentially be exacerbated for parents and children who have recently moved to a new country.
The period of adaptation to the school environment will be different for everyone. Some children will build relationships very quickly, which can make the process smoother. For other children who have never been cared for by anyone other than their parents, the process of building relationships can be slower due transition to the new environment, leading to common doubts and worries of the parents and children’s tears.
