Every child is different, but the impact of starting a new school mid-year or anytime, can prove overwhelming; for even the most confident child. Furthermore, the damaging impact on the child may be exacerbate if the child endures multiple moves in a short period of time; particularly during the early childhood stage.
Switching schools three or more times in early childhood appeared to be linked to a “two-fold greater risk of developing psychosis-like symptoms such as hallucinations and interrupting thoughts”. Repeatedly being an outsider by having to re-integrate into new schools may lead to feelings of exclusion and low self-esteem.
When do you think is the best time to change school for a child?
