Take the child to the schools playground when the school is not in session to familiarize the child. Give your child the confidence he or she needs before the first day of school.
Show The Importance Of School
It is your duty as apparent to lead your child into believing that school is important and it is not something that is forced rather something they should be in love with.

Find all reasons that will give them a perception that school is a beautiful place and ensure that everything you tell them is true or you will be dealing with a disappointed child at the end of the day. Another important thing to mention on your childs first day of school preparation is the importance of education and how fun books, reading and writing are. With proper preparation, you will have a happy child in love with school.
