school readiness logo

Is your child starting school in September?

Then it’s time to get school ready.

Being ready for school means lots of things, some of the basic points include your child:

  • Having good social skills
  • Being able to cope emotionally with being separated from parents/carers
  • Is relatively independent with their personal care
  • Is ready to learn and want to find out more about the world

To help get your child ready for school, come along and join our free parent/carer workshops taking place around the borough.

The topics we will be covering during these friendly and informal sessions include:

Communications skills

Toothbrushing tips

Developmental milestones

Healthy breakfast and snack ideas

Toilet training

There will be a chance to meet the school nurses to discuss issues around your child’s health.

A range of professionals will be on-hand to answer your questions and provide tips.

We will also be handing out goodie bags (one per child) to everyone who attends.
