Routines have gone out the window. Work may have paused for parents and play time for kids wouldn't have started and ended with the chiming of school bells.
It is no wonder the return to school can be a challenging time for some.
This year many children aren't simply returning to school after the summer holidays. These children are returning to school after two years of home-school learning and multiple lockdowns during a pandemic. Add this to the mix and it is completely understandable for children and parents to be feeling a mixed bag of emotions.
I asked a select group of parents who happen to be friends 5 questions about how they were feeling.
Nadia - Mum to Julian starting Grade 1
Erin - Mum to Harvey starting Prep
Lucretia - Mum to Lucius starting Grade 2
Suzy - Mum to Noah starting Prep
I then asked the kids how they were feeling. Watch the video for their responses!
Over the years I have had many parents share with me how much our animal Pillowcases are loved by their children. Our characters have helped their children settle to sleep and have offered a little comfort after a bad dream.
As a result our animal character pillowcases have become quite a comfort to their children!
Instead of children hauling pillowcases to and from school, they can simply select their favourite character in the form of a Key Chain and pop it on their school bag to join them on their journey.
Our friendly and supportive animal Key Chains offer a familiar face in those first few weeks of school. Our hardy Key Chains make the perfect addition to a school bag, pencil case or water bottle, helping your young ones through the day while identifying their belongings.
To support children and families with returning to school and to make the transition from home school learning to being back in the class room as easy as possible we have created our Back To School Bundles.
