  • What to expect on the 1st day of reception? One of the best books for reception class

    When your child starts with preschool, often, you do not know what to expect. Soon your mind starts wondering: Does my child know as much as their peers? Is my kid ready for Kindergarten, and does my kid know everything he/she should know before the first day in reception? This is absolutely normal, but we should all keep in mind: Let‘s try not to be anxious as our children will feel it and might get anxious too. And the last thing we need is to add even more stress in turbulent times of change. Children should be excited about their start in reception class and feel that a new adventure is coming up! Children are naturally keen on learning new things, and every child learns at his/her own pace. With the support of the Reception teacher or preschool supervisor, things will fall into place. Try not to stress out everyone involved with learning at home sessions to get to know the alphabet, counting to 20 and writing his/her name.

  • How to prepare a child and what to know before the first day of reception in the UK

    It is encouraged to talk with your little one about the things about to come. What is the reception class like, and where is the reception class' building? How does it look? Which other children will be there and how do I get there? Have relaxed talks and exchange with the soon-to-be preschooler about emotions, expectations and your support along the way. Plan some fun activities around the start and collect some ideas for reception class. What are we going to eat? And how will we celebrate this milestone? With CUKIBO‘s highly personalised children‘s book „Starting Reception“ you will benefit from beautiful illustrations, exciting activities, and fruitful reading hours to prepare the whole family for this event.

  • How to cope when starting reception class: fearing separation anxiety

    Not every child experienced daycare out of the home or nursery before starting reception. And of course, parents, carers and grandparents want their little ones to feel safe and loved. You might experience the fear that your child might face separation anxiety issues. Think about quick goodbyes, intense hellos and consider the funny and very helpful idea of a palm symbol for you and your kid to master this challenge successfully. You find more about it in the personalised storybook first day of reception.

  • Starting reception class - what to buy? Why a personalised children book

    Oh, yes – absolutely! The individualised children book facing their start of Reception prepares the whole family for the big day but contains a lot of very personal memories as well. The storybook contains activity pages for drawings, a personal letter dedicated to the child as well as fun facts to remember. And not to forget: The child is asked to insert some pictures and photos. This book is a wonderful gift from family, friends, grandmother and grandfather, godfather and godmother, aunt, uncle and everyone, who wants to contribute with a unique and individual give-away. Last but not least, it is a thoughtful and valuable present, which will create memories for a lifetime.

  • I am a single parent. Is this a book for single parents also?

    We want your customised version of Starting Reception Class to be a match with your personal situation. The book is a match no matter the family structure – single mother, single father, raised by the grandparents, other caretakers, guardians or foster family. Not to mention patchwork and rainbow – you tailor your story for the child. On top of that, you can choose from a choice of different boy and girl characters. This way, you enable the child to recognize him-/herself in the book. Additionally, we avoid old-fashioned stereotypes when it comes to gender roles and gender issues. The next generation needs to grow up with children books showing a modern, diverse and open-minded world and society.
