Autumn means back to school after the long summer break. Make sure your child has everything ready in time for the start of the new term with our handy checklists. Read the full checklists on our blog.
Top tip for Reception: Put name stickers on the inside edge of each shoe so when you put the shoes together, the stickers are next to each other so your child can easily work out which foot each shoe goes on
Top tip for Primary School: Most schools take donations of uniform items that your child has grown out of and will sell second hands clothes to save on costs
Top tip for Pre-School or Nursery: If your little one has been off all summer arrange a few play dates with his/her pre-school chums so he/she gets excited about seeing them again at pre-school

Are you planning to leave your child with a carer for the first time? Is he/she going to a new nursery/ school this autumn? All parents face at some stage the difficult exercise of teaching their children how to separate.
Separation produces conflicting emotions for your child. Parents might also experience mixed feelings of excitement and guilt.
