We understand that when your children reach school starter age there are lots of new feelings and questions running through your mind. “How will we adjust to the change in routine?”, “How will my child get on with the other children?”, “Will they make friends quickly?”, “Will they respect their teachers?”, “How much play time will we get together”?
Emotions can run high, it’s a BIG change and you suddenly realise . . . your little ones are growing up!
It’s an exciting time too! Because your circle of friends suddenly increases and there are new HOT topics up for discussion! “Which shop is doing the best deal on school uniform and stationery?”, “Where shall we go for coffee after the school run?”, “Shall we walk to school or set up a car share?”
There are some great resources online with top tips for preparing yourself and your child for starting school, like this one from Babycentre.co.uk
One of the key points in this article suggests if you have younger children not yet at school starter age,they may miss their siblings, so distractions are good “Continue to visit favourite playgroups and parks. Arrange play dates, maybe with the younger siblings of children who have also just started school.”
Spending quality time with your child after school is important too. Farmer Palmer Passes enable you to enjoy plenty of play time with your little ones. Be that during the school day with their younger brothers/sisters, or after school and with other Parents too! Remember; under 2’s gain FREE admission to Farmer Palmer’s.
With 2,639 Parents (correct at time of writing), who make the most of the farm park with unlimited admission whenever the park is open, granting many hours of quality time together. Many of our pass holder parents also use their passes for after school visits. As this enables little ones to burn off extra energy and adults to take the opportunity to catch up with their children about the school day in a relaxed, fun environment. Little learners are usually hungry straight after school so the Hen House restaurant is great for snacks and meeting up with other Parents too.
We listen to our clients, and over the past few years we’ve noted parents of school-starter aged children haven’t been renewing their passes as they are unsure if they will visit enough to warrant the expense, with uncertainty about the financial commitment.
So we’ve come up with a solution! Because we care about our pass holder ‘family’ and want to offer you a great way to save money and still have lots of fun with your ‘babies’!
