Too Young for School?

Dr Rajini Sarvanathan, Developmental Paediatrician

27-Jul-17 16:00

Too

A recent study in England found that children who started school a year younger than others are more susceptible to poor mental health. Yet we could also argue that our children would benefit much from an early start in school, if they have the capacity to do so. How then, can we tell if our children are ready for school? Helping us answer that question today is Dr Rajini Sarvanathan, Developmental Paediatrician.
