West Berkshire Flying Start Poster
02 Jul
The Early Years Service Team has now created a West Berkshire school readiness poster – “ A Flying Start to School”. (see download) We hope that this will be a useful resource which will enable schools, settings and childminders to have a common language with regards to school readiness, supporting transition, and to help signpost parents of ways they can support their child prior to starting school. There is also a page on the West Berkshire directory which complements the poster and provides further information: www.westberks.gov.uk/flyingstart
