Yes that’s right Thomas has started school, I mean he was only born a short while ago and now he goes to school! A few weeks ago I phoned by old primary school which is my second choice for Reception next year just on the off chance to see whether there were any places in the Nursery for Thomas. Partly because over the past month I came to the realisation that I should have started Thomas at a school nursery back in September but as he was already in a private nursery full time I didn’t but after speaking to other parents and hearing about how much their child had come on whilst being at a school which made me regret not putting Thomas in.

Luckily Thomas got a place meaning he was off to school! The few days before I felt really nervous about it and starting having second thoughts wondering if I was doing the right think starting him at a school now that he may not even get in to the reception class come September.  With Thomas going to school it meant that he would also need to start before and after school club and a childminders which I was also really nervous about because it is throwing a lot of newness at a 3 and a half year old all in one go.

Monday came around I dropped Thomas off at school I was half expecting him to be a little clingy being in this new environment with 60 new faces but he wasn’t he did brilliantly he just sat with me whilst the teacher asked me a few questions and then we hung his coat up on his peg and then I gave him a kiss and cuddle and then he waved me off and went back in to the classroom with the teacher.

The teacher has been telling me about how well he has been doing since he started and how well he is settling in. Thomas has also started the before and after school club and childminders like I mentioned and he has been doing really well with both of them, they have both said it's like he has always been there. I'm already noticing changes in Thomas especially with the things he comes out with like he tells me to talk in a little voice and if he wants me to do something for him he will ask me if I want to be his special helper its ever so sweet. I'm really looking forward to seeing how he develops even more in the coming months
