Ballet class for a 6 yr old

Hello, I have a new student coming for ballet class. I have taught this age before, but, I do have a question. Do you as teachers prefer the barre work to face the barre, or hand on the barre? Again, I have done both. I am looking for what will make it easier for the student.

For six year olds I have them do centre practice, they don't have enough body awareness to be able to align themselves with a barre for at least another year. Most of my first time barre students are 7 or 8.
