School Readiness Program
Our school readiness program is aimed at preparing our young people for big school/kindergarten. We focus on helping children understand and deal with their emotions, to be able to initiate friendships and develop self-confidence and self-esteem. We know that social and emotional readiness will assist in a successful entry to school, allowing them to be effective learners.
Our school readiness program, with qualified teachers, offers a secure and encouraging environment for children to develop autonomy, focus on respectful relationships and understand social courtesies. We engage children with an individual, small group and whole group experiences and structured group sessions for discussion times, music and language. All activities are designed to be flexible and are focused on the learning experience rather than the academic outcome, while literacy and numeracy are introduced naturally through everyday experiences.
