Ready for School, Ready for Life
Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right. Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.
Starting School Bags
Borrow one of the Starting School bags - you can request one from Essex County Council libraries. There is a parent guide, fun stories and fact books to share together, to ensure the transition is stress free for all the family.
There are more parenting resources on the libraries website
