Flushing, NY, September 05, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- As this beautiful summer comes to an end it only means one thing, back to school. Since the school year is right around the corner, everyone is preparing for that first day of school. There are many objectives, such as traveling to and from school, bullying, food for school, before and after school child care and developing good homework and studying habits. Parents need to know how exactly to take care of them in a timely, organized and economical manner.
In order to be completely ready for this approaching school year, Waterview Nursing & Rehabilitation Center would like to share some back to school tips for parents this year.
Remind your child that there are probably a lot of students who are uneasy about the first day of school. This may be at any age. Teachers know that students are nervous and will make an extra effort to make sure everyone feels as comfortable as possible.
Children should always board and exit the bus at locations that provide safe access to the bus or to the school building.
Most schools regularly send schedules of cafeteria menus home and/or have them posted on the school's website. With this advance information, you can plan on packing lunch on the days when the main course is one your child prefers not to eat.
During early and middle childhood, youngsters need supervision. A responsible adult should be available to get them ready and off to school in the morning and supervise them after school until you return home from work.
If you choose a commercial after-school program, inquire about the training of the staff. There should be a high staff-to-child ratio, and the rooms and the playground should be safe.
Some children need help organizing their homework. Checklists, timers, and parental supervision can help overcome homework problems.
“We at Waterview want our neighborhood parents and students to be prepared for a successful and healthy school year, which is why we decided to share these helpful tips for parents to make the most of this period of growth and development for their children,” stated Michael Berger, Administrator at Waterview Nursing.
