my daughter will be starting year r in september and i found out today that they can start going full time straight away or carry on with mornings first and ease them in to full time.. my daughter loves school but im unsure what would be best. what do you think?

I think the answer will vary for each family. you can always try full time to start and if it causes issues, drop to part time and then build back up to full time.

personally I have my son in full time for three days out of the week and love it!

I think it is easier for your child to start part time until she is comfortable with going every day. Most children are keen to go at first but when they realise that they have to go every day all day they take a step back. Ease her in gently and see how things go. There is no rush. Most of the time they make a friend and then you are in luck if they go all day because she will wont to stay as well. Good Luck!
