What Do Children Really Need to Know Before They Start School

“Starting school is an important milestone for a child. For parents, it is often exciting and stressful in equal parts. Is he ready? Will she cope with the long days? Have we done enough reading and counting? Have we picked the right school?

According to Wesley College’s Head of Junior School, Maria Hodges, “It is so lovely to see little people settle into school quickly and then thrive. The excitement in their voices and the way they want to participate and embrace learning is a delight.”

Mrs Hodges says there are some easy steps you can take to make sure your child is one of those who embrace school rather than being fearful and overwhelmed.”
