Did you get the school places you wanted?

For many parents in the UK, this Easter weekend brought the news of their child’s primary school place*.

Now the news has sunk in, the countdown’s on to your child’s first day at school!

Don’t forget our top tips for preparing for school: 

Establish a routine – the more you practice, the more you’ll get used to the school run! 

Keep your paperwork – so you can keep track of school holidays and procedures 

Organise childcare – to cover the beginning and end of the school day!

Don’t forget, you can continue to order the same amount of childcare vouchers when your child starts school, and even save up leftover vouchers for care during the holidays!
