Your child is already preparing for school life while they are in kindergarten (børnehave). The kindergarten works with you and the school to ensure that your child feels confident about starting school. As a parent you play an important role in ensuring that your child has a good experience when they start school.

You can reassure them about starting school by talking positively about it. If you are concerned, it will rub off on your child, so talk with the kindergarten or the school about your concerns.

It is the school’s job to work closely with parents to give all children the best possible platform for thriving in life. If as a parent you get actively involved with your child and their schooling, it will have a major impact on their learning and development. This in turn will impact on how your child fares in and out of school.
