Moving during term time

Moving during term time

If you attempt to move home during the school year, you are likely to encounter a number of problems.  The biggest issue will be your children, who have to face the prospect of adapting to new teachers, new classrooms and new friends.  The good news is that children can adapt quickly, particularly if you take an active role in the process.

Moving home is not a bad thing and this is something that you need to make sure your children understand.  This is one of the reasons why it is a very bad idea to spring the move on your children as a surprise, leaving them a only a few weeks or less to get used to the idea.  Children need to have time to say goodbye to their friends.

You should also talk to your children about all the new places they are going to be able to see, particularly playgrounds and recreational parks.  You will also need to make contact with the directors and teachers at your children’s current school and inform them about your children’s upcoming departure.  Ask the teachers to create a study report for your kids; once this has been done you will then need to find your children a new school and get in contact with the administration there.

Since your children will not be able to assist with the relocation process during term time, it is all the more important to consider the hiring of a professional moving company.
