Saying Goodbye


It’s that time of year when children move on to the next stage in their educational journey and we do as much as we can to prepare them. We try to answer all their questions about their new school and we make sure that all their records are completed on time to give to parents to pass on.

We try to keep the children straight about the time frame too when they announce, ‘I won’t be here tomorrow, because I’m going to big school!’ So we talk about what we’re going to be doing tomorrow, and the week after, and about the holidays, because there’s still a lot of time to pass before the big school adventure starts, and this delay can make the children anxious when they still don’t have much understanding of the passage of time.

We try to keep everything low-key though so the children don’t get upset as they leave. Generally it is the staff members who get more upset than the children on the last day!
