DD will be hopefully going to the Christian independent school right across the street from us in 2020. To the best of my knowledge, at that school they provide everything (at least in junior primary) and charge a composite fee to cover those things (text book hire, educational materials, stationery and equipment, art and craft materials, photocopying, sunscreen, swimming for primary students, swimming carnival, sports day, excursions, and assemblies for special presentations). That's I think about $450 in Reception. Even though she has 4 years until she starts, reading how much everyone else is doing is getting me slightly stressed already about how or if I'll cope when the time comes.
My boy is non verbal too.
Yes, very nervous and devastated that, yet again, I've been given information that has turned out to be inaccurate.
Will just pull myself together, put some makeup on and see what there is to be done. Thanks again.
Makes it so very hard when our kids are non verbal, the communication barrier is lost which completely scares me as they can't speak up on how they feel or what they want!
My DS probably won't be speaking or even walking by the time he starts full time school, I find it impossible to let him go...
Big hugs, I hope you csn get through today! xx

So my DD has two teachers who split the week. One teacher for Mon-Wed and the other Thu/Fri. Not sure how I feel about it, it's a new concept to me so find it a bit strange.
Provided both teachers communicate well it shouldn't be too much of an issue. It can also be a bonus if each teacher has strengths in different areas because the kids can benefit from each strength.
Pregnant for the first-time?
Not sure where to start? We can help!
