CHOOSING A SCHOOL
If you stop for a moment and recall your school days, you’ll realise just how important the experiences you had at school were for forming key facets of your personality.
The right pre-prep, kindergarten and primary school for your child can make all the difference when it comes to forming the productive, healthy and happy adults they will develop into.
The more than 12 years your child will spend in their basic schooling will have a massive impact on their personality, their social skills, how they solve problems and overcome difficulties, and even how they view the world.
That is why it’s important to choose the right fit of school for your child and understand their policies and protocols, so you and the school can work together to further the needs of your child.
By having an institution that shares your systems of beliefs, you can help to shape and mold your child into a well adjusted, independent adult, willing to work hard and gain the rewards of their hard work.
The school will also be able to establish your child’s strengths and weaknesses and find areas where your child will excel and identify where they may need to apply more effort to improve.
Helping to recognise where children are struggling, and helping them overcome those difficulties, can help to show children ways of overcoming adversity — a lesson they can take with them into adulthood.
Whatever your choices, being the support for your child while at school will take up a large portion of your life and will give you both memories to treasure forever.
