Dr. Nick Smith, founder of The Oxford Open Learning Trust and Oxford Home Schooling, spoke with Femail and revealed that there is a truth in the general belief that autumn babies can do better at school.

Nick explained that it was especially appropriate during the formative early Key Stages 0 and 1, between three and seven years, when children & # 39; significantly more than a year can claim & # 39 ;.

The revelation came when midwives told Femail that they had seen a significant increase in the number of children born in September – especially teachers' babies – meaning that some parents could make a conscious decision to give their children an academic to give an advantage.

Dr. Nick Smith said: “Children born in the fall months, especially in September and October, have almost a year of life experience more than classmates born the following summer, and this can give them an advantage at school.

& # 39; This is especially true in the formative early Key Stages (reception, year one and two), when children develop incredibly fast. At this age, children can progress considerably more than a year.

& # 39; With an additional year of development in the pocket, autumn babies can anticipate their cohort, both academically and socially. They can adapt faster to the school environment, record content more efficiently and communicate better with others.

& # 39; All of this depends on various factors. If a child is raised in a positive learning environment and is naturally intelligent, they may be able to make up for the deficit and vice versa – fall babies may not develop as quickly as they are born later, making their lead unnecessary.

& # 39; However, parents with children born in August, close to the closing point, sometimes have the option of remembering them for a year, suggesting that schools recognize the impact this may have.

& # 39; Although every child is different, life experience is crucial during the early years of education, and as such they will certainly benefit from the extra time they develop. & # 39;

When the birth was full in the fall, midwife of the women's health clinic, Carollyn Lawson said: “We are always busier in September because of babies who have arrived during the Christmas and New Year holidays. & # 39;

And Deborah Cresswell, a Nu-V practitioner and midwife with 35 years of experience, agreed that there are more mothers who give birth in the fall months.

She added: & # 39; My personal observation is that many babies & # 39; s of teachers seem to have been born in September and October. & # 39;
