Starting school is an important milestone for both parents and children. It’s a child’s foray into the education system and the first time that many of them will be spending most of their time away from home and their parents. It can be an exciting as well as a challenging transition, so it’s important to be prepared.

Getting to school on the first day is not the start point of this journey; there are many things to consider further in advance. First Year at School is an essential guidebook that will help parents understand the challenged and expectations of starting school—from the preparation that is required a year before school starts, to picking the right school and developing relationships with teachers. The book also supports children and families throughout the entire first year of school—covering topics such as the curriculum, making friends and working in partnership with the school on any concerns.

Organised in a simple-to-read format, the chapters break down comprehensive issues—such as building dispositions for learning and social skills, getting to know the curriculum, dealing with technology, understanding the practical matters at school and managing children’s friendships and school-related worries—in a step-by-step manner. Through its real-world advice and a positive approach, this book will equip parents with the necessary information they need to help their child thrive in the first year of school.

Written by early childhood experts, and full of contemporary and inclusive case studies, this new edition covers new topics such as navigating technology and natural disasters.

The first year sets the foundation for lifelong learning and development of skills needed to succeed in life. For parents whose children are about to start school, this is a vital resource.
