KidsHealth

Massive library of info about the physical aspects of childhood, namely nutrition, safety and injuries, sleep habits and so on. Their back to school follows a similar pattern, only it talks straight to the kids themselves, forgoing mediators like parents or teachers.
Good advice on how to get ready for school, what to expect there and how to make the most of it beckons. Wish these sites opened when we were kids.

First Day of School Activities

Sometimes you’re stuck for what to do upon returning to a study framework, but fret no more, for here we get to partake in some useful shenanigans catering just to that conundrum.
Name-remembering games kick off proceedings, then there’s get to know your neighbor activities, time-capsule designs, and even previewing the class photo.
Meant more for teachers, students and parents can still take a peak for advance intelligence.

metlife

MetLife: Your Child’s First Day at School

Snoopy or not, MetLife are mostly interested in selling insurance. Still, out of commercialism here arose a bona fide informative resource, helping parents with pointers on how to prepare themselves and their kids for that big day.
There’s stuff on encouraging children to learn and gain a better perspective of school, and descriptions alerting of learning disorders.
Strangely, no insurance sales pitch.

MetLife.com’s Family section

edumart

EduMart

Don’t let this site’s under-construction feel dissuade you, it’s an excellent inspiration for purchase ideas of educational toys, tools and other appliances.
Search by brand name, location or educational theme, there’s also a card-maker just for the going back to school movement. EduMart can also help locate retailers in specific localities, although as of this writing the service is limited to North America.
A cute, friendly alternative to Office Depot, Ace and Staples.
