Hello parents, many of us here at Crown have children too and we understand that a significant relocation can generate significant anxiety not just for adults but also for those most invaluable of precious goods, your children.
That’s why we’ve prepared a page with helpful tips and comments from a variety of young children who have experienced a relocation with Crown. Feel free to show your little people our page, we believe that these shared experiences can be very reassuring. Use this link to visit our moving with kids page.
Advice for parents
Moving can be an emotional and confusing time for anyone, especially children. Whether you are moving across town or to a new country, we are committed to helping make it a great experience for all of the family. We have a wide range of fun stuff to help your kids enjoy and learn from the entire moving process.
Kids love routine – make sure they are well prepared by discussing the move with them. Give them special attention and tell them all about the arrangements as they happen. Be positive and enthusiastic even if you are feeling a little apprehensive yourself. Explain the process of packing and how they can help, explain what will happen on moving day so the children have a clear understanding and there are no surprises.
We have a page dedicated to sharing helpful tips and reassuring advice for parents relocating their children. Visit our moving with kids page for more information.
Keep the kids entertained while in lockdown with Crown’s Colouring Competition. There’s great prizes up for grabs for each age group. So print off the colouring in sheet, set the kids up some pencils, crayons or felts and enjoy some quiet time. Click here to download.
