Start of School

The beginning of the school year is full of emotions for children and parents alike as we transition into new routines, surroundings and relationships.

The following Start of School Checklist and related Comfort Kit instructions make it easy to know what you need to do prior and during the start of school.

We invite you to read Leaving Home, a short article about understanding the connection that grows as children have  independent experiences.

The Children’s Garden staff is looking forward to the start of school and we are here to guide you on this exciting journey now and throughout the school year.
