It’s halfway through the first term for hundreds of children across the district, making their tentative first steps into the world of learning.
It's so much more than remembering the alphabet or simple sums. There are friends to make, and playgrounds to explore.
Over the past few weeks, our photographers have been criss-crossing the county, capturing the moments that will stay with these youngsters and their parents forever.
Children from dozens of schools from across Canterbury, Herne Bay, Whitstable and Faversham are featured in this year's supplement.
