In kindergarten, primary school, secondary school and university, you don't just learn for good grades, but for life.

This is where you make friends, find your future profession and mature into a personality. We at Markenkoffer are happy to accompany you on this journey - because each new station requires the right school bag, school backpack or the right bag - depending on age and requirements.

Kindergarten: a new world

For you as parents, it is usually very emotional when your child suddenly goes to kindergarten. Your child gets to know a whole new world there. Besides playing together, it builds up additional points of reference and gets to know new people. Sometimes friendships are formed for life; kindergarten simply expands your child's radius. And when you pick your child up from the kindergarten dirty and tired, you know that he or she had a good day!

Animal or colourful:
The right bag for the kindergarten

The kindergarten backpack is the precursor to the school backpack. In it, your child can take breakfast, drinks, snacks, toys and clothes with them every day - in other words, everything they need in the course of the day. But the bag should not only be practical, it should also please your child - then the morning procedure will run much more smoothly.

10 tips for an uncomplicated acclimatisation to kindergarten

Kindergarten Eingewöhnung: aufregend für Groß und Klein.

1. Talk to your child about kindergarten often before the time of settling in. Tell your child what to expect there and how wonderful the time there will be. Kindergarten should not have a negative meaning for the child because mummy and daddy have to work, but should become something to look forward to.

2. If your child is already a little older, we advise you to choose the backpack or bag for kindergarten together with your child. Your child can also choose a matching water bottle or breakfast box, which he or she can then use at kindergarten. This increases the anticipation enormously.

3. Pay a visit to the chosen facility from time to time so that your child can slowly get used to the route and the location. For example, you could pick up a friend who is an older child with your child from time to time.

4. Pack your child's favourite cuddly toy in his or her kindergarten bag. This way, even in a strange environment, he or she has an object that conveys familiarity and can reassure him or her.

5. Allow yourself plenty of time to settle in and plan accordingly for enough time with your employer. Children and their individual settling-in time cannot be planned - every child is different and pressure is the worst thing you can give your child.

6. Make a photo album with your child about the time of settling in. This way he/she will be happy to take great photos in the kindergarten and stick them in an album afterwards. It is also a great reminder and a way to share this special time with distant relatives.

7. Settling in is usually easier for the child than for the parent. Prepare yourself mentally for this time beforehand and don't let your child realise how difficult the separation is for you.

8. Sneak away at nursery school to avoid a tearful goodbye? Not a good idea at all. Because then your child will get scared when mum or dad are suddenly gone. Instead, say goodbye briefly and concisely with a ritual, e.g. a goodbye kiss.

9. Try to separate from your child more often even before settling in. Especially if only one parent is the main carer, it is important to wean the child off beforehand. Grandma and Grandpa are a good option if they are nearby, but friends can also watch your child for hours at a time. You have certainly chosen a wonderful nursery school.

10. Agreement with the nursery teachers is also essential for a successful settling in. Continue to implement kindergarten rituals at home, and you can also give the teachers tips on how to deal with your child. Then your child will feel safe in a community that radiates togetherness.

These 3 things your child needs at kindergarten

Kindergarten equipment: What is needed besides a cute children's backpack.

Nursery bag
Your child is already grown up and, after you had only a diaper bag for him or her in the early days, now needs a bag or backpack of his or her own that he or she can carry around. It should contain all the things your child needs for everyday life. The bag should have plenty of room for toys, cuddly toys and a lunch box in which your child can carry his or her daily snack.

Gym bag
Kindergartens often offer first sports activities, e.g. gymnastics for children. For this, your child will need a small gym bag containing comfortable clothes and a pair of suitable shoes, e.g. soft slippers.

Change of clothes
In most kindergartens you can leave a bag with a change of clothes for your child in case of a small mishap or a sudden change of weather. You can also put wet wipes, medicines and nappies in there, the teachers will thank you for it.

Finding the right school bag

School satchels and backpacks: the most important companion for your child when starting school.
Finding the right school bag is not that difficult. Every child and every family is different - and so are the demands on the school bag. While some prefer a simpler design, others find it particularly important that the colours are bright and eye-catching.
However, there is one thing you should always keep in mind: the right ergonomics. The backpack should never sit too low and should ideally be flush with the edge of your child's shoulder, and the satchel should never be wider than the small of your child's back.
The straps should be adjustable, and an additional hip or chest strap can provide extra support. The back of the satchel should adapt to the shape of the child's body, and the closure of the satchel must be easy for the child to open and close. Many reflectors ensure safety.

Successful school time
6 tips for a relaxed, motivated school day

Happy during primary school time

The first time at school means a change for the whole family. We have collected some tips for you so that you can continue your relaxed everyday life from the times of kindergarten. Motivate your children even before they start school and talk about the first day of school again and again. Celebrate it too, plan nice activities and reward your child for making it through the first day or week of school so brilliantly. 2. 2. praise efforts, not just successes. Proper learning needs to be learned - and not everyone masters it from the start. It is therefore all the more important that you encourage your child's efforts from the beginning and not just praise the results, i.e. good grades. In this way, you also take away many of your child's fears of failure at an early age. 3. 3. create order in the environment. This means that the flat or house should be as tidy as possible, or at least the place where your child studies or does homework. A quiet environment allows for more concentration and creativity. 4. 4. provide a balance to the school day. Whether it is hobbies that your child is passionate about, enjoyable leisure activities with friends and family, or sports, your child should feel that they have a life outside of school. 5. get enough sleep. Such a school day with a lot of concentration and silence means enormous effort for a child. It is therefore all the more important that they get enough sleep to recover. 6 Prepare everything in the evening. Preparing the school bag in the evening for the next day should become a routine. Because if you don't have stress in the morning, you start the day better. This also includes an extensive, quiet breakfast with the family.

How to make a successful transition to a secondary school

Successful transition to a secondary school

No matter whether your child changes schools after the fourth or sixth grade or whether he or she goes to a Gymnasium, Realschule, Hauptschule or Gesamtschule, a change of school is always exciting. As a parent, there are some things you can do to make the transition easier for your child. Relaxation There is strength in calm. Especially when it comes to parental support at school. Don't put pressure on your child, give them a long settling-in period and stay calm during the first performance breakdown. It is only a matter of time before they get used to the new school. Organise networks Most schools offer taster sessions before the actual start of the new school year, where parents and teachers, teachers and pupils, and also classmates can get to know each other. Take advantage of these and, after a successful first meeting, arrange your contacts to introduce your child to future classmates. In the best case, your child will already have friends at the new school before the school year has even started. Homework book A homework book can make life more enjoyable. No child can remember all the homework in the new subjects after a change of school, let alone keep to the deadlines. This makes it all the more important to have a neat homework notebook in which all to-dos as well as dates of classwork and tests are written down. If these can then be checked off, this not only gives you a good feeling, but also your child.
