Back to School: How to improve kids concentration & focus at school

It’s back to school time! Again. Yes, there’s still plenty of time to eke out those final glorious days of summer, but it’s also time to start getting mentally prepped for the upcoming school year. After the holidays, it can be tough to get kids heads in the game. Here are a few things that can help them focus, from the basics like establishing a routine to concentration boosting supplements like Omega 3s and 6s.

Five Back to School tips for focus and concentration

It’s tempting to go all out until the final day before school starts but it’s not a good idea (ask any teacher!) especially if your kids struggle with transition or learning issues. Now is the time to get a back to school routine in place. This means regular meal times, earlier bedtimes, daily reason and yup, hauling the kids out of bed in the morning!

With screens now a regular part of our kids lives, it’s imperative that they get regular outdoor play and activity. Exercise improves brain and body function, regulate emotions, improve focus, and helps kids sleep well at night.


Kids need their rest. Sleep directly affects mental and physical development. School-aged kids need a regular and consistent sleep schedule and bedtime routine. Keep the bedroom free of distractions and no screens in the bedroom.

Eating habits

In our rush to get kids out the door, off to school and activities, we can neglect healthy eating in favour of quick snacks and processed foods. Balanced meals help regulate emotions and improve brain function and stamina. Think protein, nuts, fruits and veg. Make it a priority.
