How to Create the Perfect Morning Routine for Your Child

Fact: it’s tough to transition from “summer-mode” to “school-mode” in any home. While this may happen year-after-year for your children, some children are anticipating their very first year at school — and there’s nothing more exciting than that! If you’re looking to prepare your child for the perfect morning routine, then here are some simple ways to do it:

Early Bedtimes

Unlike the summertime, your child won’t be able to sleep in late — since school starts bright and early in the morning. If you’re looking for the best way to help your child adjust to the time, then it’s best to set an early bedtime a few weeks before the first day of school. Not only will this make the adjustment much more comfortable for them, but they’ll wake up with ease on the big day!

Lay Everything Out

Sure, your child might want to pick out their outfit for school — but they might do that minutes before the bus arrives. To avoid chasing the bus each morning, it’s best to let your little one pick out their outfit the night before. This will not only eliminate any bus-running, but it will put them (and yourself) at ease, knowing that everything is okay and ready to go.

Once their outfit is picked out, you can then lay out their essentials in the bathroom. From their brushing essentials to their hair comb, this will help your little one greatly, while they become more independent. Of course, let them know that you’re always down the hall to assist whenever they may need it!

Create a List

One of the best ways to keep your child on track in the morning is to create a list of their morning schedule. From waking up and getting ready, to eating breakfast and waiting for the bus, this will help your little one put into perspective their school days and will definitely help them develop a routine. This will also be of great assistance, since it will prepare them for being on a schedule in the classroom, too!

At Miss Sue’s Nursery School, our prime educational goal is the development of the whole child — socially, emotionally, physically and educationally.
