Visit the Teacher and the Classroom
Don't hesitate to call the school and ask if you may bring your child in before school starts. This will give you both a chance to meet the teacher and see the classroom. Point out the cubbies, closet space, the nearest bathroom, and the offices of the school nurse and school secretary.
The building will feel different when it is filled with children. Even so, getting to know the classrom quietly and at his own pace will help to create a sense of security for your child.
