School Readiness actually refers to a much broader range of skills. In addition to some academic basics, school readiness skills also include self care (independent toileting and opening lunch boxes), attention and concentration, physical skills (e.g – having the endurance to sit upright for an entire school day), emotional regulation, language skills, play and social skills.
You want your child to be ready to learn, thrive and accept challenges when they start school, rather than them ‘just coping’ with the whole experience.
We also run a School Readiness program for children attending school next year. Due to Covid Restrictions, we have had to put our classes on hold. Please contact us for more information.
