A move to a new home can be challenging and stressful, especially if you’re moving with kids. The good news is it doesn’t have to be a nightmare. With the right prep, it can all go smoothly. Here’s are some handy checklists for moving with kids that can make it seem easy.
Prep for a New School
Changing schools can be one of the biggest challenges when moving with kids. Make sure you do the following:
- School districts – research the school district where you’re moving and find out what your home school will be and the potential for enrolling at a school of your choosing.
- Registration – as soon as you know what school your child or children will attend in your new location, get them registered. This will help the school and the teachers prepare for their arrival.
- Updated records – make sure to get updated records for your children. This includes medical records, vaccination records, and school records.
Packing for Children
Moving to a new home can be exciting, but it can also be hard on kids. It can be upsetting and make them feel a little lost in the shuffle. When you pack for them, be sure to mark their boxes so you can unpack them first. Setting up a new room right away can make them feel at home. Also, be sure to pack essential separately so you can carry them with you instead of putting them in the moving van. This can include special toys or stuffed animals, blankets, or books.
