Back-to-school tips for parents

After six weeks of vacation for children, the return to school can be complicated, which is why it is important to resume a routine.

- Set up activities at home at a fixed time every day: snack after school, board games, bath/shower, meals...

- Get back to a regular sleep schedule by putting your child to bed at the same time every day.

- Quiet activities and no-screens before bedtime and then reading a story every night.

The first week of school can be a source of anxiety for your child. To help your child manage their emotions, don't hesitate to tell them how you experienced your first days of school; the most important thing is to listen to your child.

Bonne rentrée !

Community life & Neighbour & Parking

We know that it is not always easy to park around the school, especially during the pickup and drop-off. To maintain the best relationship with our neighbours, we would appreciate it if you would respect their privacy and not encroach on their properties. Please keep in mind that Kiss&Go signs are designed for quick entry and exit, and made for minimising congestion and risks when used properly by all parents and carers. Thank you for your understanding.
