The Primary Years

The Primary Years

Full-time education is a big milestone for children and a chance for parents to congratulate themselves for getting this far. Next you will need to think about how far to educate your children together – same class? same school? – and how you can encourage them each to develop friendships and confidence. Click on the links below to find out more about educating multiples separately or together, choosing the right school and preparing your children for transition, dealing with rivalry and how to handle differences in achievement between multiples.

Together or Apart? 

Full-time education brings a whole range of new issues: applications, decisions about keeping multiples together or not, concerns such as special needs and the making of new friends outside the family.
