Episode 47 – back to school organising

A collection of school supplies to show back to school.

In this podcast, Lesley and Ingrid talk about all the planning needed before your children go back to school for the autumn term.

Before your children go back into a new school year there are so many things to think about to get them off to a good start. We talk about school uniform or clothes shopping, school supplies shopping, labels and routines and how this adds to a smooth transition back to school.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How the school system is different across the world. 
  • School uniforms have their pros and cons. 
  • The need to avoid the last minute school shoe shopping rush.
  • How to be sensible when buying back to school supplies.
  • Simplify, delegate or embrace clothes labelling. 
  • The decades old need for sticky back plastic.
  • Integrating a command centre into family life before the children go back to school. 
  • Having a designated homework area.
  • Thinking about new morning and evening routines.
  • Doing a practice run for public transport journeys.
