28-08-2012, 08:42 PM
Hi all, from next week I have 2 schoolies in the morning at 7.30 4 days a week. What sort of breakfast do you provide? Do you leave a selection out for them to self select?

And also my room is full of gear for the early years little ones, how much stuff should I provide for a 5 and 7 year old before school? Few books, games, colouring sheets? x

HI I ask them what they want from the selection in the cupboard, by the time they have eaten it there isn't much time left, but i do find that my before schoolies like to play with the lo's things especially the elc happy land things, just go with the flow for the first few days and get to know what they prefer to do:)

good luck

I provide choice of three cereals or toast plus glass of milk or water :thumbsup: if they are still hungry after they are offered a portion of fruit xx

Oh and all cereals are decanted into those clear plastic cereal tub things so kids can't be brand snobs!! Haha xx
