Hi there. Do you know anyone with children in local infant or primary schools? If you do you could phone for a visit to get a feel for the school. When I had my little girl I had no idea you had to sign up so soon! Your local council should have information if you're not sure. Or if you go to mother & baby or toddler groups, you can find out a lot there. Also ask your health visitor when your boy has his next check up. My health visitors were always really helpful.
A ONE year old in school? I don't think that's what they mean by PRE school! Everyone is first time parents the first time.
Contact your local education authority to see if they can tell you exactly what you want to know. Mine wrote to me when my son was about 3 to tell me that it was time for us to choose a school for him, but it might be different where you live. Best of luck.
The child is too young to go to school. Has to be at least 3/4 b4 he can go to school.
Find a good nursery/primary school and register early. You will be fine but do not leave too late
Suggest you take a trip to the school of your choice and asking them the same questions. I applaud you for asking for this information but feel the person who noticed your spelling mistake ought to grow up and appreciate that some people make elementary mistakes in typing. (on the quiet, use the spell checker to avoid the embarrassment.)
once you have moved and settled go to your nearest pre school and put your child's name on the list of enrolment, normally they would give you a form to fill in to pass onto the school of your choice nearer the time of school age or you could get in touch with the school and again put your child's name on the list, some schools take names up to 1 to 2 years in advance
UK? Grab the phone book and call the local council, they will have an early years advisor and should be able to post out lots of local information, not only about nurseries but also playgroups which are a great grounding for learning social skills, he's old enough for those already, maybe one of two a week, for an hour or so (with you there teaching him how to share). The local library will also have leaflets and be able to help.
You will need to approach the local primary school and let them know that you want your son to attend their pre school.Different local councils will have different ages that children can go to pre school.It may be a year or too before your son can start but you will be on the waitng list for a place.Once he starts,he will be virtually guaranteed a place in the primary school.I hope this is helpful to you and that you get him a place!
Go and get your lottery ticket! If you're lucky he'll get a school! You've got to be in it to win it.
If you are in england then for nursery school contact your council they will give you a list then go and lookaround them and see which one you like can afford.The pre school will then enroll your child or give you waiting list info.As for school at the moment you are sent a letter and you choose 3 schools and then you are informed as to which school your child attends this letter is sent to you the year your child will be starting school and depends on your childs birthday my son was 4 in dec and we have just been informed he is in the school of our choice.Hope this helps
Most children don't attend preschool until the academic year in which they turn 4. The exceptions to this rule tend to be if your child has special needs or is on the at risk register or if their home life is especially difficult eg problem family, special needs siblings etc. Ask you health visitor about local toddler groups and take your child there to socialise, get to know other parents and, if they have older children, ask them what their child's school is like. Also be aware that parents never know exactly what a school is like, nor do teachers, remember to ask the children if they enjoy it. If a child under 8 isn't enjoying school there is a problem there.
The LEA (Local Education Authority) gets your childs details from your doctors records so will send out a form automatically the year before your child is old enough to attend primary school. It is up to you to enrol your child in pre school as this is not a legal requirement. Once you are settled, have a look at what schools are around your area, go onto the OFSTED website and search for the schools to see how they are performing. You can then ring the schools up and arrange to go and visit them. You arrange with the actual school to get your son into pre school.
Take no notice of people who pick you up for your spelling, who gives a tshi!!
If wanting top private nursery, view now and put name down with hefty deposit for privalage of place on waiting list!! Otherwise keep GP informed of change of address and forms will be sent to you nearer time. In UK, forms posted before third birthday and places normally from the term starting after the one in which you have third birthday. Worth looking out for posters about open days as they vary a lot. Ofsted reports are on internet under ofsted - worth a look. Also look at ones linked into schools - getting a nursery place at a nursery attached to good school, often gives you advantage in getting a school place at that school.
if you want him to go to preschool you'll have to get his name down as soon as you know where you want him to go, as they fill up fast. i had enough trouble finding my daughter a nursery place at seven months and i rang just after she was born!
as for schools if you want a privately run school the same applies.
local authority schools have a list of criteria to follow :-
special needs and children in care first
older siblings at the school second
distance from the school third
and then all others depending on reasons
choose the schools you like and then make an appointment to look round and then choose the best
you have to have applied by the November before the September they are due to start and you will find out if the have a place by march. if you don't get a place there they will find one for you at another school.
hope this helps x
Go to the school/schools of your choice and ask for his name to go onto the waiting list. It is important and not to early at 1yr old to get on waiting lists. The government policy of choice for parents is limited to places in school, which could mean your first choice could be denied. It is also important to have some knowledge of the schools ie. class size,OFSTED reports etc. You can get a lot of info on line at the local authority web site.
Depending on when you'r child turns three they will start the term after their 3rd birthday so all you need to do is pop into the school of you're choice and they will give you all the forms when all of that has been done they will get in touch to offer you a place. T he earlier you do it the better but I would say wait till you're child is bout 2.
i VISITED SCHOOLS IN THE AREA I WAS LIVING IN THEN I RANG THE ONE I LIKED AND ASKED FOR MY CHILD TO BE PUT ON THE WAITNG LIST. hOPE THIS HELPS.
If you don't feel ready to have a baby that's your mistake don't go to answers and tell the people what to do! think about what you just did.get a little advice from the counselor try your very best just remember you made him.
