The First Day

For children and parents alike, that very first day of preschool and primary school is always an emotional one.

This gorgeous, precious tiny little person is transitioning into a classroom. No matter how they have been cared for up to now, that very first day of school is an emotional one. A child is starting their journey to school and it is a real milestone.

This lovely poem is for all the parents who are dropping little ones to school this year. It is a reminder of the care that they will receive in the classrooms of dedicated professionals who will nurture and guide each child as they grow into independent little learners
