School Day Fun With Clamber Club

When to start schooling one’s toddler is a hotly debated issue amongst Mom’s. Everyone has an opinion or some statistic that some professional has given them on the optimal age for a child to start school. I have surprised myself with this whole motherhood thing. I’m not hung up on statistics or what books say and have totally let Ava guide me in what it is she needs and when. I don’t read parenting books (I can actually hear some of you gasp) and I don’t panic when Ava does or doesn’t do what a book or professional says she should be doing at any given time.

So far my instincts have been spot on and she has proven to be a bright little girl and so I’m pleased that 4 months in, my instincts on when to start her with school have so far been spot on. She’s also really landed up at the perfect play school for her and I’m astounded by the things that she has learned and knows just from going to school. The school has been really fantastic in organizing lots of additional activities so there’s always something excited for the children to look forward to.

This week Clamber Club came to the school for their fun day on Wednesday and I can clearly see from the pictures that my child was in her absolute element!

    Like a (ver cute) fish in water !!
    Your instincts as a mum of Ava are impressive. …. Great of you to have found the confidence within yourself and to keep all the other well-intentioned yet conflicting/confusing mummy-advise out !!

    Looks like she is thriving Sharon! Dylan “graduates” this year from Clamber Club and they are having a little Graduation Ceremony on 3 Dec. I’m so looking forward to it, and can’t believe the change in my child from when he started Clamber Club to now. So amazing to watch them develop.

      Putting the twins in school at 2 was the best thing I ever did for them. They love it and have developed like you can’t believe! They have Clamber Club every week at school and the love it, you can also get them for parties, which the kids love!

    BUT then I look at these pics and I just burst knowning how much she will enjoy school.
    (sending you so many hugs, Sharon…)

    We have decided to start Baby OL at school in January (23 months). She is just a different child in company than she is at home. I think she is bored and will love school.

    I totally agree that each child is different and you should let your child guide you.
