Making the move easier

It’s normal for kids to feel a little uneasy about changing schools. But that doesn’t mean they won’t settle in quickly, make new friends, and become a valued part of the community.

Here are some quick tips to make the move easier on the little ones.


Have a chat

Sitting your kids down for a quick discussion can go a long way to helping them understand the benefits of the move and look forward to the exciting new opportunities ahead of them.

Ask questions

Get your kids to talk, write, or draw pictures about a) what they’re looking forward to in the move, and b) what gives them anxiety about it. Next, go through the list and discuss each one to help demystify the experience and put them at ease.


Involve them in choices

If your kids are old enough to understand and discuss the pros and cons of each school, get them involved in the decision-making process. After all, it’s their future tool!


Talk to other kids

Have any of your kids’ friends moved house recently? Getting peers to talk about their own experiences moving house can show the little ones all the positives they have to look forward to.


Be enthusiastic

Your kids will look to you for signals about how they should feel about the move. By putting your own concerns at ease and demonstrating your enthusiasm, you can help set the mood for the whole family.
