Starting a new school, whether it's for the first time or a subsequent change during childhood or adolescence, marks a significant milestone for children. While it's often a time filled with excitement, it can also stir up a mix of challenging, big emotions.

In today's video, the final part of our mini-series on supporting children through change, I discuss the signs that your child may be feeling anxious about starting a new school and share practical tips to help them navigate this transition.

Ultimately, by being proactive and responsive to your child's emotional needs during this transition, you can empower them to embrace their new school experience with positivity and optimism.
