Here are some stories and resources that might help your child to return to school. These resources explore many different aspects of school - emotions, making new friends, the school day etc. By exploring these resources many times, your children may understand more about what will happen. I advise you to look at these resources beforehand so you know what the content is and can prepare for your child to ask questions.
