My 5 year old starts full-time school next week (Prep here in Tassie). He had 3 days a week at kindergarten last year and thrived, but is not so keen to go this year. I think he will be OK on day 1, but worry about how I will get him to continue going happily. Any suggestions for those who have had reluctant returners this week (or at any time) would be much appreciated thanks!

  • Just be positive and talk about all the fun things he will do and learn.

  • Being positive and talking it up is always a good way to go. Talking about the fun things that your little one will get to do at school is important. Lots of sleep does help too.

  • As you say, I’m sure he will adjust. If he loved it last year, no reason why he won’t love it this year
