Thanks for writing to us.
This is a normal and expected response of all the children whenever they go to school for the first time. It is best that you accompany her to the school for a few days till she mixes up well with her new friends. This transition will take place in 10-15 days and then gradually she will get herself adjusted to the new routine.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

It will pass with time. All children go through it in varying degrees. Some children it may take more time and frustration, but they will eventually get through it when they start making friends and wanting to be with them.
