Minois is back to school

It's back to school time! A time when excitement is always mixed with a touch of stress for children and parents alike. We asked the Minois team’s mums how do they feel before this special day and what are their essentials for a successful back to school’s day. 

Audrey, our development and production director, mum of Martin and Gabriel

Back to school: excitement or stress?
They both go to schools and nurseries that they already know so it's more the excitement that comes first! Kids are impatient to spend time with their little friends and parents, after many months working remotely with the children at home, are impatient to get back a "normal" professional life without the usual "mom is on the phone for work, could you please stay calm for a few minutes ”;)

Your back-to-school essentials for children?
Not very original ones but at each start of the school year = a new backpack;)
We really like the linen models that you can personalize from Petit Picotin or the "classics" Moumout ’Paris or the animal Trixie which little ones love and which even offers assorted water bottles.

A feel good ritual just before back to school (for young and grown-up;))?

So I would rather say a little feel good ritual just AFTER the first week at school: the 1st weekend after getting back to school, we escape to the sea (because we are lucky not to be too far) to keep a little longer the sweet feeling of the holidays!

Farah, our store manager and Aliyah’s mum

Back to school: excitement or stress ?
A bit of both, excited that Aliyah is going back to nursery, hanging out with other children and doing lots of new activities.
A little "stressfull": because it is a bit special this year with the covid .. the parents cannot stay with the children in the playground, we will have to stay behind a glass .. so it is a little sad for first time at the nursery.
I am also a bit stressed because she needs to adapt herself to the nursery rules as she has been looked after with a nursery assistant at home so far.

Your back-to-school essentials for children?
It's funny because like Audrey, I made a personalized bag at Petit Picotin, and otherwise her favorite blanket;)

A feel good ritual just before the start of the school year (for young and grown-up;))?
Before not necessarily, apart from explaining to her (something I have been doing for over a week) where she will go. I will try to do it with even more enthusiasm on D-day so that she will be excited about going to the nursery. After, we will go for a sunny walk and a little snack outside :)

Hélène, founder of Minois and mother of Paz who is going back to CP and Noah

Back to school: excitement or stress?
Here it's excitement, Paz is entering first grade, an important step, she can't wait to start with the "grown-ups" and learn to read and write!
And for me, I have always enjoyed back to school, meaning new beginnings and new projects :)

Your essentials for back to school?
A durable and comfortable pair of shoes! Here, like every new school year, we chose a pair of slip-on vans without laces to be autonomous!

A feel good ritual just before the start of the school year (for young and grown-up;))
With the holidays, we tend to lose some good habits so I would say put in place a real bedtime ritual to sleep well for young and old alike :)
