    Default Do your kids go to school on there birthdays?

    Just something I've been thinking of. DD will start prep next year and I've always enjoyed spending her birthday with her. If it falls during the week, she has her party on the weekend after but we always do something on her actual day.

    So do you send your children to school on there birthdays every year?
    Do they want to go to school on there birthdays?
    And did your child go to school on there birthday in prep?

    I kind of see prep as preschool, not really school more like half daycare half school. I dont know! Next year her birthday falls on a Thursday so I will keep her home to do something with family. But as she gets older if she wants to go to school on her birthday and spend it at school with friends. Then I will let her of course but if she doesnt want to celebrate her birthday at school then I think I'll allow her the day off?

    aww DD wouldn't go to daycare on her birthday either. I'd rather spend the day with her then the daycare teachers lol. I guess I'm just soft It's up to her though if she wants to go she can. I never wanted to go on my birthday though.

    ETA and like last year christmas eve fell on a daycare, she didnt go instead she spent the day with family and we did special xmas eve activities

    My dh's mum used to pick them up after lunch and have a little party- i thought it sounded a little odd tbh. I always went on mine

    Ds will never go to school on his bday as its xmas day, but dd will. I think its important they still go.
