Hello and WELCOME to our school readiness program where one of our resident leading experts, Sonja Walker, talks us through everything we need to know about our children starting school.

Separation anxiety is very common in children starting school for the first time. In this video, I provide you with practical strategies to help your child overcome their separation anxiety and a helpful free fact sheet that you can download and use at home that will help your child to feel more confident.

We will be releasing a new video each day for 25 days so please join us to learn all you need to know about starting school!

  • Have a plan, don’t just wing this. That’s my advice from experience.


  • my daughter is very clingy to me so being a part is something we will find hard. loving the videos cant wait to watch the rest


  • Thankyou for sharing these videos, found them helpful as my daughter started pre-primary this year and there were a lot of tears,monkey gripping and begging me not to go when I was leaving :(


  • Great hints – I will take them on board myself – that way I will cry less when my grandchild goes to school and I miss out having him for the day


  • hello welcome
