Getting Ready for School
Starting school can be really exciting but also daunting for our children (and parents!). To help make the transition as easy as possible we have a range of activities prepared to help our children move across as smoothly as possible into their new schools, this includes:
Chatting with the children about going to a new school and what it will be like
Inviting the children's new school teachers into Pre-School to meet the children who will be joining them in September
Giving the children an opportunity to try on a school uniform in the colour of their new school
Encouraging a love of learning and increased independence in practical skills e.g. going to the toilet and washing hands, putting on coats
Holding a leavers service to celebrate the time the children have had in Pre-School before they start a new chapter in their lives.
We have also put a selection of parent resources together to help you prepare your child for school:
