You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. – Dr. Seuss
Starting school is a big milestone – for parents and children. It’s a big step up from Kinder and we want it to go smoothly for everyone. After all, there are 13 years of it so it’s important to make the best start possible!!
