How we assist your child with our School Readiness Program

School Readiness, is exactly that is a program that enables children to be ready for school and there are many elements that make a School Readiness Program work and be successful. However, it mustn’t be mistaken in preparing children to read and write, solely on these learning capabilities.

Our School Readiness Program associated with The Early Years Learning Framework will consist of the following elements.

  • Social and Emotional Capabilities and Maturity. “Belonging”
  • Being able to separate from parents/guardian when dropped off without distress.
  • Understanding responsibilities for own belongings, and caring and respecting other children’s belongings.
  • Communicating and responding to Educators in a positive manner.
  • Communicating and responding to peers in a positive manner.
  • Making connection with other around them, including their peers and the environment.
  • Following direction when intentional teaching is apparent.

Participating in group experiences without being side tracked and or pre-occupied. Making age appropriate decisions and initiating their own play. Positively dealing with conflict, i.e. not hitting or hurting others when conflict or frustration is present.
