Attendance in Prep
Prep children come to school for four days per week for the first term.
Difficulties to expect and solutions
Young children tire easily during their first month at school. If your child is finding the full day too much discuss this with the teacher. It is better to pick them up early than allowing them to become over tired and stressed. Don’t be surprised if there are difficulties even after you have done all you can to prepare your child for school. If you child cries when you are leaving it usually will only be for a short time as he/ she will quickly become interested in classroom activities. Your child may expect too much from school and be disappointed when he/she cannot read after two or three days and he/she may become very tired and want to stay home. These are common difficulties, which are quickly overcome after the first week or two.
Going to school is an important milestone in your child’s life and it is a major events for parents too. To make your child feel comfortable
