So DS starts school next year ! ( NSW kindergarten which is first year of school) and we just had 2 orientation sessions which was great and DS seemed to love it , it's all new to me so id love to hear how your child's kindy year was and what their routines were and any tips you may have!
we spent the 2 sessions with the principal who just went through the school policy's etc and he said we have 2 classes of 20 kids in each class with a teacher and full time aide , he said first term is exhausting for them so try not to schedule any after school activities for them as they will be too tired
School starts 8.45 and finishes at 3pm ( most of the kids in the infant school get there at 8.30 according to other mothers so they have a 15 min play before school starts )
Fruit break is 10am
I thought the recess was a bit late at 11 considering DS will have brekky around 7am so I'm thinking I'll take a yogurt or make a smoothie for him to drink in the car on the way to school?
How did your child cope in their first week and more importantly how did you cope!!
