Where will my child go to school?

This is a question every parent is faced with, and it can be an overwhelming time.

Mainstream school, satellite/support class, special needs school, public, private, independent, or for some families, home schooling… there are many options to consider.

Start looking at your school options long before your child needs to enrol.

Support from professionals and from other parents can be so valuable during this period. Make sure you consult with the professionals who work with your child and talk to parents at the schools you are considering.

It’s so important that you are prepared for what can be a very demanding time.
