Back to School: 10 Tips for a Smooth Start

Tour the School (Especially the Bathroom!)
Your little one will feel a little more comfortable if she knows her way around the classroom. When you go to meet the teacher, make sure to give your child the lay of the land. If the school is new to her, point out where the bathroom is, and review the route with her so she knows exactly how to get there. This will help avoid any embarrassing accidents.
Other important areas to point out are the nurse's station and the school office. Chances are, your child won't be wandering around the school alone, but if she finds himself separated from her classroom, she'll know where to go.
