First day at Under th Rainbow

Rhys has been so ready to start at Rainbow. When the door open, he runs into the classroom with the other kids, sits down and starts playing with the play dough (I’ve seen a kid sit on him and he didn’t even budge!), gets his name from the name board, plays with the toys there and just acts as if that is his school.

But last Monday he actually did start at rainbow. He was very confused when I put in his smock, but I do think he got it a bit. I had to stay only 5 min with him and the teacher told me that this would be a settling in week, and he should stay for only 1.5 hrs every day (bummer!). 

I went for a swim anyway and saw that they had called 20 min before I finished my swim. The message was just about whether Rhys could have milk and biscuits, and by the way, I could actually come at 11:30 to collect.

When I got there to pick him up, the teacher said he was brilliant, played with the other kids, was so good and happy and could come all morning the rest of the week! Go Rhys!
