Do you know where your child is all day? Visit their school and see!

Take your child to school and ask them to show you around – where is their classroom? Where do they sit? Where do they eat lunch? Where is the playground? Who is their teacher? Who are their friends? Having this information will make it easier to relate to your child as they tell you about their school life.

Ask your child to show you around their school and introduce you to their teacher and their friends. Having this information will make it easier to relate to your child as they tell you about their school life.

  • Look at their artwork and other displays in the classroom
  • Do some puzzles or read a book together before you leave
  • Later on, ask your child questions about what you saw and the people you met to show your interest
