30 Things To Do Before You Go To School

Our statated aim at Elswick House is to give children the best possible start in life and to ensure  that, when they go to school, they are confident, independent and sociable young people, with a highly developed curiousity and a love of learning. But we also want them to always remember the wonderful times they had with us. We want them to remember the FUN and some of the exciting things they did. So here is our list of 30 things we are aiming to do with all our children over the next 12 months. Needless to say we shall be adding more to the list as the year goes by!
