Many parents are interested in the skills that children need prior to starting school. While traditionally it was reading and writing, now schools prefer to teach this once children start school. The NSW Department of Education and Training has developed a list of skills that may make starting school a bit easier (available on the website).
Our school preparation program commences from the time your child is enrolled at our centre and represents a continuous approach to preparing each child for primary school. We aim to assist your child to develop the skills for them to be life-long learners.
Our preschool educators will focus on helping your child to follow instructions, express their needs, use the toilet independently, adapt to unfamiliar settings and new experiences, play cooperatively with other children, sit still to listen and share an adult’s attention with several other children.
