To support families to navigate the important transition to formal schooling we’re inviting you to follow Paisley’s Big School Adventure.
Paisley’s Big School AdventureFor the next twelve months we will follow one of our clients, Paisley on her journey throughout her first year of formal schooling. The blog will be written by Paisley’s mum, Kimberley who will take us through the highs, and sometimes the challenges, Paisley and they share. We will also chip in with helpful advice for parents along the way.
