Hi all

We're moving back to Sydney (from Brisbane) in a few weeks and planning on living around Oatlands. We have a 2.5 year old little girl and another bub on the way.

Has anyone got any experience with Head Start Oatlands? It would be walking distance from where we plan to live so it would make life a little easier.

What about other daycare centres around that area? Any recs??

Thanks!!

Sorry if this is too late but I live in the area and DS goes to Reggio Emilia in Parramatta who have been pretty good (just south of James Ruse Dr out of Oatlands). DS was on the waitlist for Head start from when I was 4 months pregnant and we didn't get a spot at the Jan intake when he was 1yo (he's 2 now and I still haven't gotten a call), spots are pretty tight.

If you want to know anything else about the area feel free to PM me

I've heard great things about Head Start, but we didn't get in either.

    How dogs could make children better readers

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
