    Yeh I didn't know this was a thing. Tbh it didn't even occur to me for DH to come along to DS1's first day.

We have no family around that would be interested in attending fdos so I'm jealous, I'd kill to have all those people to invite

    [Edit:having said that, ours is a small school with 2 prep classes, it depends on the size of the school too. The other local school has 6 prep classes and drop off time is a pure traffic jam]
    We have 9 prep classes!

    Geez I think even *I* would be overwhelmed on the first day, as Mummy of the preppy. I could not handle that! [Hence why we're at a small school ]

    Just me and her Dad went to the school, but we met at my parents' place (round the corner from the school) for photos etc first.

    For my cousins first day at both primary and high school they had their parents, siblings x2, grandparent x2, aunt (my mother), 2x cousins (my brother and I).

    It would be inconceivable not to be there. We classify us all as immediate family.

    With my DDs first day of her FYOS it was just DH and I - we got her brother babysat.

    She is going into Grade 2 this year and will be getting booted out of the car in the loading zone as I have to make it to work by 9am lol!

    DD1 is starting prep on Tuesday and it will be Dh, DD1 and I going. Dh wants to come to her first day because he won't get much chance to drop her off and will only be able to pick up on Friday afternoons each week, so he is excited too

    Gawd, that is way over the top IMO. With mine, I tried to make it just one adult to drop them off on their first day. At orientation, we had been told to try and make it as simple and quick as possible for the benefit of the kids- no lingering, not too much excitement and so on, pop the bag down at the classroom, a nice goodbye, say "have a great day!" then walk away. Sure, have some pictures at home, but not too much once at actual school.

    When DN1 started school a few years ago DH & I went with SIL, BIL, DN2, FIL & MIL. There was no issues as it was in the school hall and then all the kidlets lined up and went off to their classroom with their teacher.
