Getting Ready for the 2019-2020 School Year!

The International Preschools begins the 2019-2020 school year on Monday, September 9th (76th Street location) and Tuesday, September 10th (86th Street location).  We are looking forward to welcoming our families to school after a relaxing, fun-filled summer!

Read on for a link to a great article about preparing your little ones (and the rest of your family!) for the transition between summer and school!

For children and adults of all ages, transitions can be hard.  It’s especially difficult for little ones to change from the less structured, carefree “schedules” of summer to the more specifically designated activities of the fall and school year.  Although children crave routine, changing gears can be jarring.

The article below from PBS.org lists a variety of ways to seamlessly shift your child’s schedule so he/she will be better able to acclimate to the school year.  Enjoy!
