Advice for Parents

The Department of Education has developed a specific area of their website that will provide parents with hints, tips and advice about their child's first year of school, with additional links to further information within the Department's website. Topics include preparing for school, what to expect during the first weeks of school, what Preps learn, how children learn, healthy eating, the importance of play and tips for dealing with the school holidays.
