Nico has been accepted by the same school as Charles.  It's what we were expecting, but there's a difference between "very likely" and "formally confirmed".  Now I can move on with a bunch of medium-term planning.  First step, finding out if there's room in the afterschool club for him.

Once we get past the initial reception settling-in phase, our weekday logistics will be a lot less complicated for the next two years.  But in about a year's time I have to start evaluating secondary schools, eek.

Hurray! One less thing to worry about. Apparently I'm not likely to hear about pre-school places until June :(

Well, that has to simplify things for you, and probably make things a little less stressful for Nico when he starts.

I expect that's something of a relief, though :)

For evaluating secondary schools, you can get the help of the kid!
(not sure whether that's help or "help", mind...)

I remember looking around schools age ~10, being Terribly Serious about them. It was fun, I think :-)

Oh, yay, I'm glad Nico will be able to go to the same school as Charles, that's a really good outcome. It's a bit scary how baroque the whole process is, all my social media feeds are full of my friends with kids stressing about it.

Gosh, secondary... scary. Yay for having them in the same school for now.

Holy moly, time flies. In my head Charles is still a toddler and Nico is a blob.
