Will my child cope at school?

Will my child cope at school? Since the announcement of school places in April, many parents are concerned that their child won’t cope or is not ready.
Did you know that if your child is summer born, you can apply to delay their start into Reception? This needs to be done after you have been offered a school place and in agreement with the local authority, via admissions. This is your decision entirely-not anyone else’s.
Children do not legally have to start school until they are of statutory school age (the term after their fifth birthday).
Have a look at this…
Don’t forget-if you are worried about your child in any way-emotionally, developmentally or educationally, give me a call. We can chat your worries through for ten minutes-for free!

When and how do I potty train my child?

When and how do I potty train my child? How will I know when my child is ready? I would recommend putting underwear under a nappy for a few days, prior to starting toilet training. Modern nappies are so efficient that our children rarely get to know how it feels to be wet.
Also, when you decide to start potty training-don’t put a nappy on at times that suit you (such as when you are going in the car). It will confuse your child. Be prepared for accidents!

Did you know that April is Stress Awareness Month?

The Stress Management Society describe the analogy of a bridge to describe the topic of stress. When a bridge is carrying too much weight, it will eventually collapse.
If one of your stresses is your child’s development or behaviour, please let me take that weight with you. Give me a call-we can make a plan to get you the help you need, together. 07746756871 or email me at
