 Chances are, you are looking at this website because you are concerned as to whether or not your child is ready for school come next January. This decision can be an agonising one as we are often given conflicting and inaccurate information.

Truth to be told is, you are right to be concerned. Research shows that children who enter school but should have stayed back another year have been to shown to:

·         do less well in school

·         develop a dislike for learning

·         experience difficulties interacting with their peers

·         more likely to worry more and feel less comfortable in their environment

·         more likely to suffer from low esteem

Don’t send a child to school thinking that they can repeat if they have to. We want the first year of school to be exciting, successful and not just one where the child attempts to ‘cope’ and then has to do it all again. Repeating a child at a later stage has been found to have negative outcomes for the child in terms of their confidence and social skills.

This makes the decision to begin school a very important one to get right.

A two hour consultation is all it takes to make the right decision. Not only will you know if you child’s is school ready but the we will be able to give you the confidence on how you can support your child’s learning, drawing on the things that are good one so the experience becomes a positive for all, especially for your child.

Ease your mind and make a call for a FREE initial consultation.
