School Starters

School uniform is hanging neatly ironed, shiny school shoes waiting starting_school_200vfor their debut outing, book bag at the ready and nervous parents wondering how on earth the time has come for their darling four year old to start school? Not long now till the start of the academic year and little learners are expressing many different feelings about their impending ‘big school’ days. Most have probably been in some form of setting, whether it be full or part time and are therefore used to being apart from a parent. However a new school, with many new faces and routines can always cause a few very normal jitters from both children and their parents. To help you all along the way try sharing some of these lovely story books, which will help ease that transition.
