Hi there,

I´m really worried, my friend called to see me the other day with her 8wk old baby and told me she has already registered her in primary school :wow:
My little boy is only 19wks old and I havent done anything yet. Im not from the city and this is my first baby so I have no idea how to pick a school or where which school would be the best in my area. I am really worried that when I do find out which the best one is there will be no room for him. I want to give him the best start but how??? :cry:
I live in the Blackpool area and would greatly appreciate any suggestions

Thank you

Hey, my daughter is 5months old and i just recently put her name down for 2 schools. They say the earlier the better put dont panic you still have plenty of time. Put your babys name down in more than one school in case they are not accepted into one of them. Google some schools in the area to see whats around and ask for a tour to get a better idea of the school.
