Starting your child’s first day at the preschool is both fun and stressful not only for your kid but also for you as the parent. There are many things to take care of not just on your side but also on the side of the preschool. No matter how prepared you think you are, there will still be problems your kid and you might encounter during the first day or even as he or she continues to go to that preschool. Continue reading below to get more idea of some of the most common problems at a nursery in Dubai and how you can properly deal with them.
You might be a strict parent when it comes to following your schedule. You try your best to bring your kid on time to the school because you do not want to disrupt the class. However, there will be kids who always come in late to class because their parents are not able to bring them on time. There are many reasons for this tardiness such as parents are not aware of the exact time of the class, parents do not respect the time of the class, etc.
Whatever the reasons are, it’s important to focus on your own situation and make sure you are aware of the start time of your kid’s class. Calculate your travel time and give an allowance of at least 10 minutes and start counting backwards to figure out what time you should be out of your home and on your way to school. If you are late, this causes a lot of disruption in the class and you child will also be affected because he or she won’t have enough time to settle in and get comfortable with his or her surroundings.
Also, another way to deal with chronic tardiness if for the preschool itself to implement some rules about schedules. In one of the established preschools in Dubai, Creakids Nursery school, parents are encouraged to bring their kids and arrive at least 10 minutes before the official start time of the lesson. There are also options to bring your kid to the following class if he or she could not make it on time or is too late for the first class.
Naughty Students and Bullies
Bullying and the problem with naughty students will always be there, maybe just less at some schools and in some countries. It’s important to always talk to your child and let her or him tell you about his or her classmates at the preschool. By listening closely to how your child speaks, you can observe what goes on in the classroom, ask follow-up questions, and find out the real story if you have any suspicion that some kids are bullying your child. On the other hand, you might also face a problem where your kid is the bully and other classmates or parents are complaining about him or her. In this case, you must immediately talk to your kid, ask what or why he or she is doing it, and then cooperate with the preschool teachers in order to solve the problem.
