    I worked in after school care and kindy/prep kids were always picked up at their classroom. We did this for 2 terms or so until the child knows where to meet and what days. Also their teachers reminded them.
    If a child got confused about what day they were coming, if they had to catch the bus or if they were getting picked up they would come to us and we would contact their parents to check for them.

    I have a daughter that is currently in reception who can't leave the classroom unless someone comes and picks her up. The children that go to OSHC wait and the teacher walks them over once the last student leaves.
    In the mornings I tell the teacher what our routine is (DD1 picks her up and brings her to the drop off some days) so she gives DD2 a little reminder of what's happening that afternoon. The reception/prep teachers are great when it comes to these type of things.

    I think the tag idea is a good one.Other possibilities are different wrist bands for different things, a certain card that he has to give the teacher, etc.

    Kids do tend to pick up routines pretty quickly... but could help him remember while he gets used to it all.

    Thank you all so much! Great ideas and lots of reassurance.

    Yes, I stress a lot!

    I really love the bag tag idea too!

    At our school, prep kids get picked up from the classroom either by parents or by carers from OHSC. Also the teacher had a list stuck on the wall with kids who went to after school care and which days they went.

    I also work 3 days a week and still remind DD every morning but she knows my work days are after school care days. I work Wed to Friday so easy to remember the routine, plus home days I am not dressed up and have her toddler brother with me so it's easy for her to tell the difference.

    I always used to remind kiddo if he has ASC on the day he had to go. These days if i pick him up, i let him know before i head off to work and always ask where he wants me to pick him up from. Has been the case since prep.

    What's a good symbol for ASC on a tag?

    Maybe just a simple stick drawing of a building? It doesn't need to be too detailed, just something to symbolize it.

    The tag idea I came up with because my son has ADHD and very bad memory, so even when I'd remind him multiple times in the morning, he'd forget by the afternoon!

    He no longer needs them (he only catches the bus one day now, and he remembers), but it was a good start to get him into that routine. I used to alternate with the pick up/bus tags, then transitioned to only using the bus one, he knew that if there was no tag it meant I would be picking him up. You could perhaps just use a tag on the days that he goes to after school care to make it a bit simpler. It then doesn't necessarily even have to have a picture on it, as the tag itself would be a reminder.
