    Started At Three Years Old

    While other kids have a fear of separation from their mothers, I never did as a kid. I'm so eager to be separated that I started schooling at three. I remember my first day. I was so excited to attend the class while other kids who were older than me, are crying.

    Yes I Remember The Square Tables!

    I remember after nursery experiencing sitting down on the carpet and experiencing the play zones - school was very exciting.  Mainly because we now had to sit on "tables", in like groups of four.  I remember being very nervous and shy.
