The Blinky Company and Easy2name – Getting Ready for Nursery

It's that time of the year again - Back to School season! As the lazy summer days slowly fade away, it's time to gear up for an adventure filled with learning, laughter, and plenty of unforgettable moments.


One of the best ways to make the transition back to school life is to start getting your child back into a routine well in advance of school starting in September. This means getting them to bed at their usual time, waking them up early in the morning, and having meals and snacks at regular times. It’s good for us to get back into the school routine as well. Getting lunches prepped and uniforms pressed can become one heck of a task if left until the last minute! (speaking from experience here!)

Get ahead of the game by setting aside some time to do this so that you’re not rushing. It’s a great idea to get uniforms and personal items labelled as well so that things don’t get misplaced in the first week. Our lovely friends at Easy2Name have got some clever solutions to help you here – Nursery Starter Labelling Pack. You could also create a checklist or routine chart for your little ones to follow in the morning and evening. This could include tasks such as getting dressed, brushing teeth, and packing their backpack. Having a visual reminder of what needs to be done will help your child feel more in control and confident as they navigate the school routine.


The pressures of school, extracurricular activities, and social interactions can sometimes be overwhelming for children. Studies have shown that spending time outdoors can reduce stress, anxiety, and even symptoms of ADHD. By exposing children to nature, we also give them a love and appreciation for the environment. They become more aware of the balance of ecosystems, the importance of biodiversity, and the impact of human activities. These young nature enthusiasts can grow up to be environmentally conscious adults, who strive to protect and preserve the beauty of our planet for future generations. And this doesn’t just work for your little ones, it can be great for you too.


Sometimes being a parent/caregiver can be hard, physically and emotionally, and it’s important for us to take care of our own mental health as well as the well-being of your children. So, if you’re doing the school run with a toddler in tow like a lot of us have to, ditch the car and strap your teeny one in a buggy, then opt to walk the long way around. Whether it be through your local green space, through the park, or even just around the block a couple of times, simply being outdoors for that extra few minutes a day can do you all the world of good.


There’s no need to worry about the unpredictable weather either - just pop a BlinkyWarm All Season Buggy Cover onto your buggy, and you’ll be covered against all eventualities. It has a fleece lined cosy toes, rain cover, sunshade and sleep shade to keep your little one warm, safe and dry while you walk your troubles away and unwind.


As the school year unfolds, remember that it's not just about the destination; it's about the incredible journey you take to get there. Embrace the challenges, celebrate the triumphs, and make memories that will last a lifetime.

Happy back to school!
