Help Your Child Succeed in School

Build the habit of good attendance early. School success goes hand in hand with good attendance!

Did you know?
• Starting from kindergarten, too many absences can cause children to fall behind in school
• Missing 10 percent (or about 18 days) can make it harder to learn to read
• Students can still fall behind if they miss just one or two days every few weeks
• Being late to school may lead to poor attendance
• Absences can affect the whole classroom if the teacher has to slow down learning to help children catch up

Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school, and themselves. Start building this habit in preschool so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. Good attendance will help children do well in high school, tertiary education and at work.

What you can do:
• Set a regular bedtime and morning routine
• Lay out clothes and pack school bags the night before
• Don’t let your child stay home unless they are truly sick
• Keep in mind complaints of a stomach ache or headache can be a sign of anxiety and not a reason to stay home
• If your child seems anxious about going to school, talk to the class teacher or the school’s wellbeing teacher for advice on how to make them feel comfortable and excited about learning
• Develop back‐up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, a neighbour, or another parent
• Avoid medical appointments and extended trips during school times
