Child Care News for Parents & Carers
September 28, 2016
Welcome, this week what to do when your child says they hate going to child care and the lowdown on independent schools for parents thinking about big school next year.
"But Mum… I don't want to go to child care anymore"
It's perfectly natural for children to go through ups and downs at child care. Learning to navigate social situations and friendships, and frustrations over sharing their space with others can often lead to the occasional day when they simply don't want to go to child care anymore.

But sometimes, children can go through a lengthy spell when they become distressed about going to child care. For older children the reasons can often be identified and resolved through talking with the child. However, with younger children, who find it hard to verbalise their feelings, it can be a challenging time for parents and child. Because parents need to work, the child still needs to attend but the upset can spark a cycle of anxiety, which is hard to break.
Making sense of the independent education system
With the end of the year fast approaching, this is the time of year when many parents of older pre-schoolers start mulling over (and stressing about) their child's school for next year.

Choosing your child's school is one of the most important decisions you can make, and there are many varying factors – cost, location, philosophy or specialist learning – that can affect your choice.

Though the local state school is the natural choice for many parents, there are an increasing number of independent schools on offer, with a range of approaches to education.
