I'm sure this has been done lots of times before but please tell me your top tips for what I need to know, prepare, do... DS is starting reception in September and I've not really thought enough about it I don't think. Would be good to hear the voice of experience, do's and don't welcome.

Thanks in advance...

Wow so much information!

I thought of placing a spare skirt and underwear in dd's school bag. Part of me wondered if she would take it for granted that she had a change of clothes. Rather save her unnecessary embarrassment as accidents do happen!

Brilliant tips regarding carrying wipes and writing names on sleeves in permanent marker.

Regarding playdates- Is this a way of ensuring your dd's have a network of friends? Dd never had playdates at pre school but had a string of friends and was invited to many birthday parties.
