My little dude turned 4 yesterday! In the UK children enter school in the September after their 4th birthday (officially they can wait, but most don't) so school is just around the corner for him! Not only is he a super young school starter, but he left his nursery class in March which means the routine and social interaction of an educational setting is a distant memory. Aside from a 2-hour transition/closure session, he’s been with us every minute of every day since March 20th. That’s 157 days. I can’t even begin to imagine how it will feel to him to head off to full time school next week. He seems to feel positive about it, but even so, I think it’s so important to prepare and reassure our children for a return to school or to start their school journey.
