Ashford Prep School – The Pre-Prep Team

How can parents best support their child as they start in Reception?

Be positive as this is an exciting time. Don’t make school a big deal as this can make children more fearful of their transition. Try not to show your own anxiety or upset about your child starting school. 

On the practical side, practise zips, getting dressed and undressed, putting on coats, shoes, wellies and ensure children are toilet trained.
