Moving Checklist: Moving with Kids


Moving with kids can be a daunting task, but with this helpful checklist, you can stay organized and ensure a smooth transition. Two months before moving day, research schools in the new area and enroll your children in the appropriate school. Schedule a visit to the new school with your children and start decluttering and donating items that you no longer need. One month before moving day, hire a reputable moving company, notify your children's doctors and dentists about the move, and start packing non-essential items. One week before moving day, pack a bag with essentials for your children, confirm the moving date and time, and arrange for childcare. On moving day, keep your children occupied with games and snacks, and make sure their bedrooms are set up first in the new home. After the move, register your children for new extracurricular activities, explore the new neighborhood, and help your children adjust to the new school and make new friends.
