When your child starts school for the first time, it is a whole new experience for the child!  There’s a new schedule, a new routine, new people and it isn’t uncommon for children to feel overwhelmed.  Where some children start daycare in PJ as young as 2 months old, other children spent the first few years at home with family members. Not only would they have become accustomed to this environment and schedule but being thrust into a new environment and schedule can be a little stressful for them!  And as many parents know, when a child is stressed out, the parents get stressed out too.


In an effort to support parents in easing their child into a school in PJ, we came up with a few tips to help with the transition!


Tips to Ease Your Child into a School in PJ


  1. Communication is key

Talk to your children before they start school at least a couple weeks before their first day.  Even if they say no and tell you they don’t want to go, they have at least been forewarned.  Being positive about school is another way to ease them into their first day at their new school in PJ.  Tell them about all the friends they are going to make, and about how nice the teacher will be and all the fun activities they will get to do.  This will help them get better acquainted with the idea.


  1. Sync your child’s schedule with the school schedule

Find out what time the school has lunchtime, playtime, naptime, etc. and match it with your child’s schedule at home.  This way your child knows what to expect even though they are in a new environment.


  1. Schedule playdates with your child’s future classmates

If you know any children already going to the school your child is enroled in, invite them out for a playdate!  Or, you can always call the school and see if any other parents would be interested in meeting up with you and your child, or ask the school to schedule a playful orientation so some of the children get to meet each other and you can meet the other children’s parents.


All in all, starting a new school in PJ doesn’t have to be stressful.  Set you and your child up for success and ease into the new routine effortlessly!


About Little Human Scholars Kindergarten 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!
