Back To School is an exciting yet highly emotional time for children and parents alike. A new year, new beginnings and the next phase of their growth and development.

In the lead up to the start of the school, many parents hearts are torn between wanting their children to stay little forever and wanting them to grow so that they may start building their life ahead.

What parent hasn’t cried walking back to the car during school drop-offs, and had to compose themselves before being able to see clearly enough to drive. Equally, it’s a highly emotional time for children as they adjust to new sites, smells, class location, teachers and classmates.

The start of the new school year is almost as a momentous milestone as their birthdays, as it is a considerable step forward in their life’s journey.

To help support, we have created a Back To School Guide as a resource to assist parents through expert information and advice. In addition, we put a spotlight on Kiddipedia’s partners, leading industry experts and thought leaders to deliver supportive messages to help you be the best parent you can be.

The aim of the guide is to help and make a difference, I hope that it does that for you.
