Dropping your child off at school often has mixed results – some children love school, some children cry when their parents drop them off at school, and others react depending on their mood.

As a parent, no one likes to drop their child off crying at school.  Usually, within the next 5 to 10 minutes their child is fine and is happily playing with their other schoolmates.  But still, nothing tugs at the heartstrings like leaving your toddler with tears welling up in their eyes.


6 Ways To Get Your Child To Love School

  1. Reward them

Going to school is a big deal for a little!  Their whole schedule and routine changes and they are suddenly thrown into a new environment where they don’t know anyone.  It can be stressful!  Rewarding them for going to school and doing something different has worked with loads of parents.  For example, I used to take my child to the park after school, and I’d let her know we were going because I was so proud of her for doing well in school.


  1. Team up with the teacher

Your child’s teacher is your partner in crime when it comes to school.  It’s lovely having your teacher notice your achievements and cheer you on but having parents AND a teacher do it simultaneously can really set the school mood for a kiddo.  Who doesn’t like going to a place where you are acknowledged for your work every day?


  1. Involve them with schoolmates

Some children make friends easy and others it may take some time.  Regardless, setting up play dates with other children outside of school could give your child something to look forward to after the weekend is over.  Have a sleepover, go to the park, have a picnic or visit a theme park with a friend of theirs.  This method definitely helped me and my little when she started school.


  1. Set up a routine

Often, kids like to know what to expect.  That being said, setting up a routine isn’t a bad idea.  The key here is to stick to the routine after implementing it.  Maybe you have mommy toddler cuddling before school, or after school is time for them to go to the park, followed by quiet time.  Maybe you read together before school – whatever it is, just make sure you follow it!


  1. Be interested in their studies

Kids (and adults for that matter) like being acknowledged for what they do, and it helps when an adult or parent is engaged in their learning process and is interested.  After school, make time to go over everything they learned in each class – this not only reinforces their lessons, but it ends up being quality time spent with mom or dad!


  1. Make studying into a game

My daughter used to hate writing.  She loved reading, she loved spelling, but she strongly disliked writing down words.  So, in order to work on her penmanship, we made it into a game.  When she would practice her letters and get one exceptionally well, we would do a happy dance.  It did get exhausting after a while, but at least we were exercising and she was happy to write down her letters!



About Little Human Scholars School and Full Day Daycare Centre in PJ

Little Human Scholars is an all-in-one childcare solution.  It is a preschool, playschool, kindergarten, nursery and full day daycare centre (with extended hours) located in the heart of PJ.


In fact, the location is one of the things which makes Little Human Scholars so sought after – it is conveniently nestled near Jalan Gasing, University hospital, PJ Old town, PJ New town, Jaya One, Jaya33, and the PJ IT Mall.


The best part is LHS has premiere services many other schools in PJ don’t offer such as full day daycare with extended hours, CCTV access for parents, and a nifty little phone app called Toddlytic which provides parents with automatic updates on their child’s development, behaviour and health checks.


With full-time guards always present at each of their locations, access to CCTV (which is in every room except the office, bathroom and kitchen areas), and very strict pick-up and drop-off rules, Little Human Scholars treats every child who walks into its hallways as one of their own children!


This place has it all:  location, safety, health, IGSCE curriculum and play-based learning.  What more could you ask for?  Did I mention they also have transportation services and offer meal plans for students?  It doesn’t get any better than that.


If you are interested in a tour of one of our centres (that’s right, there’s more than one), all you need to do is fill out the form here or call +6017-7303-025 and an LHS administrative staff will get back with you shortly!
