When it comes to multiples starting school, the main question every parent has to consider is “should they be in the same class, or should they be separated”. This obviously is only a point of consideration if your school has more than one class per year, and it is also worth checking your schools policy, as some schools may have a policy regarding multiple birth families.
As parents of girl/boy twins who started school this year, this was something that we discussed a lot. In the end, we decided to keep them together for the first year, and then we will reply on teacher’s advice, the kid’s personal input and out thoughts to make the decision for next year.
These are the reasons that we decided to keep our twins together for the first year of school.
