Parenting is such a responsible position that it faces challenges in numerous ways. As soon as a baby takes birth, the challenges begin. With the health concerns about the neonate, the timely administration of vaccines to keep off the dangerous and life threatening diseases, concerns if by any chance any vaccination gets missed, then the needs of the growing up kid, the schooling and imparting of proper educational standards, giving moral values and some amount of discipline, etc.
This list is not going to get complete if an attempt is made to describe the arena of responsibility and work of parents. But, one such problem will be highlighted in this article. That is, how to prepare your child for admission to a new school.
This is indeed a challenging affair, as the child who is already a school goer, will face adverse mental as well as practical situations when he or she is sent to a new school.

There are several reasons as to why a change of school occurs. Some of these are also being included here to elaborate on our topic of discussion.
Change of class
All the children start their schooling career with playschool or the kindergarten school. It is the place which is mainly the preschool section, aimed at teaching the children the essential mannerisms, behavior with others, attitude to elders, color choosing etc. after the children complete their basic learning, they are sent to the regular academic school with starts from class one and continues till the higher school level. Thus a change of school becomes obvious in cases like these.
The transfer of parents
An unavoidable circumstance of a change of school for children is when their parents get transferred to a new city or a country. A school that had been one that the kid attended had to be left behind and the parents opt for a new one, closer to their vicinity, where they will be supposed to put up henceforth.
Change of curriculum
There are certain boards and standards of education that differ from school to school. While one school follows a specific pattern of educational standard and belongs to a particular board, another school can have different board and standard of education.
Every child cannot cope with every educational standard. Those who are weak find it utterly difficult to handle a board or a standard of education that is tougher. This results in the child’s repeated failures and dejection.
On the other hand a child who is of greater I.Q will find an easier and not suitable to study in a board that is below his or her standard. So, in such cases the parents decide to change the school of the kid to a suitable one, where he or she will be able to get education with ease.
An idea of betterment
Parents always wish that their children will be educated in renowned and good school. So, after a certain age, they prepare and make their kids sit for interviews with the top schools which they prioritize for their kids.
Hence, when the children get through the interview well and get admission call from the respective schools, they leave the previous school with an idea of betterment in educational career.
Insufficient accommodation of the school to provide higher education
Some schools have so structure that the kids cannot get a chance to pursue further education from that school after a certain level. For example a school can be so structured that it can accommodate students up to class six. In such cases students studying in these schools will have no other option than to shift to a new school as soon as they pass out from class six.
Steps to follow while preparing a child for new school
When a child gets admission to a new school, the very thought of going to the school on the first day and learning up everything new, makes the child as well as the parents traumatized. A new school will mean new set of norms and discipline, new atmosphere, new teachers, new classmates, in total everything new.
