    Year one is when I started dropping him off and he walks himself in most days unless its canteen day or I have to go to the office for something. Depends on the child ds2 will prob be a little older before I do the same with him.

    I don't drop DS as there are never any parks on that side of the road and well I don't trust him just yet to walk to the crossing so I always walk him in the gate. By half way through prep that was as far in as I was allowed but this year he likes me to wait until the line up music plays. I don't know why the change but thankfully I can stay in the morning even though he ignores me once in the gate ha!

    Definitely depends on the child. My DD is very independent and always has been, so I started 'kiss and drop' when she was five years old and she was quite comfortable with that.

    Dd who is nearly 6 and in prep walks into the classroom alone. No roads to cross depending on which side I can get a park but if there is I walk her across. I stay in the car and watch her until I see her walk into the school gates. She's only been doing it for a few weeks though.

    DD1 is in Year 1 and I park and then watch her enter school grounds through an entry way. It helps that she is a very vocal girl and seems to know nearly every single person she walks by and says hello, so I know she never goes unnoticed.

    Definitely depends on the child. DD1 is 6 and in year 1 she would be perfectly fine to walk from the drop off zone, which she's done twice now but I can see her the whole way. I think me dropping her to her classroom is more for my benefit though lol.
