Getting Ready for the Next School Year
Move over, spring - summer is coming! But before we head for our much deserved summer break we hurdle on what happens next: your child moving to the big school, your toddler now ready for nursery? Choosing the right school or nursery is an important matter and not always an easy one. We have put together some tips for you to take into consideration when going on the school hunt. In addition, we give you some ‘behind the scenes’ insight into what it means to be the Dean of Students at school.
Every year millions of parents make choices about their children’s schools. Whether you choose a school proactively or not, the effects on your child will be considerable. During the long school year, your child will spend more time in school and related activities than in any other task beside sleep. School matters. The school you choose for your child and how you interact with that school, matter too.
The Dean of Students is part of students’ growth and development and are also expected to handle disciplinary issues. But what exactly does a Dean of Students do and what challenges does he face? We spoke with David Webster-Gardiner from a US Curriculum Private School who gave us some ‘behind the scenes’ insight.
Starting school is a huge milestone in a child's development. Even if your child is not in school yet, you can still have a positive effect on their education and prepare them for school success. Your child's educational experience in preschool or kindergarten will be better if he or she is well-prepared to start learning.
