We strive throughout the children’s time with us to help their growing independence and self-confidence from the smallest thing like putting their shoes on themselves, but also endeavouring to give them the social skills to make friends and deal with new situations that can arise.
When our children are getting ready to move on to ‘big’ school we aim to make the transition as smooth and worry free as possible. From a young age they will become familiar with the schools as they come with us on school runs daily to drop off and collect siblings and friends. We also have frequent visits to the various schools the children will attend and we’ve been lucky enough to many shared outings with our friends at big school. This gives the children a chance to meet their teachers and also to see other children they will come across when they start.
