Thank you for your query,
The start of schooling will be difficult to children and parents as the children starts crying and become fussy.
The main reason for this crying is due to seperation.
So the it should be gradual and the school activity should be like a play.
In the initial days , the school time should be less and like half an hour and mother should present around the school premises.
As the days progress, the time of speraration is gradually increase lke 5 to 10 minutes a day.
If the separation time is gradually increased over days it will be successful.
And the child should be allowed to play with toys at her school.
Hope I have answered your query.
