One of the most important things you can do for your child is to make sure they attend school regularly and on time. This starts from the very first time your child attends an education setting e.g. nursery or foundation stage.
Having a good morning routine is vital for us all to get a good start to the day when we have things to do. It is especially important for young children to start good habits which will last throughout childhood and beyond.
Starting good attendance and punctuality habits early will help your child’s social development. Making and keeping friendships is easier if your child is there on time, every day.
