FYI: Wickford parents with children starting…


Is your child ready for starting school this September?

Would you like to understand how to support your child to make this transition?

We are holding a transition information event at:

Highcliffe Children’s Centre, Rettendon View, Wickford, SS11 8JE on 21st June 10 – 11.30 am

Everyone who has a child who is due to start school in September within the Wickford area, is welcome to attend. It will also provide an opportunity to meet other parents whose children are starting school in September.

This session will be delivered by Kasey Brazier (Children’s Centre manager) and Ros Marsh (Year 2 teacher at Hilltop Infants School).

Booking is required, please call Alison Hunt at the Children’s Centre on 01268 574486 to book a place.

There will be a crèche available if required.

While searching the web for some photos to add to the above information (which I received via email from my daughter’s school) I found this fab page on the World Book Day website which I thought you may also find useful ** Great books about starting school **

If you have any tips and/or books that you think would be helpful to parents who have children starting school this year, please do post them below.
