Preparing Your Child To Start School

Self-Paced Online Course for Parents of Preschoolers

Getting your children ready for the first day at school can be exciting and daunting all at the same time.

As children go through this new stage of separation from their parents and caregivers, stress and anxiety are very common issues that may appear. They are a natural reaction to the changes that your children are experiencing; and with the right tools you can take control over the situation and help support them through this transition phase.   

This online training is for parents who are looking for practical tools and therapeutic techniques to navigate the challenges your children may experience when starting school for the very first time.

Presented by award-winning team Sian Chambers-Vallance, Clinical Play Therapist & Consultant and Tony Vallance, Teacher of the Year (2019). Learn from experts in the field about how to best resource, prepare and support your child with one of their biggest steps in life - starting school.
