The Beginning of the Journey (Transition Period) – “Mama, I’m ready for my first day in school!” The first step in the educational journey of a child is important not only for the child himself, but for the parents and the entire family as well. It is this phase where the child will begin his or her first independent interaction with the outside world – the teachers, the attendants and their peer group.
For some children, adapting to a new environment can be as easy as a cakewalk, but for some others this transition can be slightly challenging. The thought of leaving the comfort zone of their home and going to a new environment can make a few of them anxious. In order to make this transition comfortable, we have a specially designed ‘Transition Program’.
Under this program , the child’s mother or the primary caregiver accompanies the child for the first few days. During this time, mother and child engage in games and other fun activities aimed at making the child familiar to the new environment and comfortable with his facilitators. This not only helps to ease the anxiety levels in both parents and students but also gives the parents a valuable insight into the school activities and functioning. This process continues till the child is totally settled and happy in his new class.
