Being able to interact with other children and share resources and toys is a key skill that will help your child when they start school. Getting used to waiting their turn is something that some children have maybe never had to do, especially if they have missed out on nursery sessions and play dates due to the national lockdowns.
Over the summer, play dates with other children (socially distanced! ) in the run-up to starting school may help. Getting your child used to not having the toy that they want straight away is important and showing them how to react to this is key. When the children start in school, we will help and show them how to share the equipment in our environment. We will be very clear with them on what is expected and we will establish rules and routines very early on.
