Course Summary

Do you have a child starting school in September, whether this is in nursery or reception this is the course for you. This course aims to give you all the information you need so that you can prepare your child and yourself with what it is like to start and attend school. Starting school is one of the main transitions that children and their parents go through and it is important for everyone to feel prepared as this will support a positive transition. The course will be taught by a qualified Primary school teacher who has worked within the early years and supported many children, and their parents through this transition. This course will give you all the information you need, from what it is like at school, what to expect, what the school will be doing with your child to what you can do to support at home.
