What is the Aim of The School Readiness Program
The main aim of Our School Readiness/ Preschool Program, is to give preschool children a gradual learning process in preparation for their first year of Primary School, through Provocation, Play Based Learning, Coincidental Learning Activities and Intentional Teaching Activities.
Our Preschool School Readiness Program enables children to be ready for primary school and there are many elements that make a Preschool School Readiness Program work and be successful. This program is taught to all children aged 3 ½ -5 years old. With a strong belief in preparing children for Primary school from age 3, we understand that the transition to Big School is a big step for both children and their families. Therefore, we aim to be there the whole time, as we believe the importance of working collaboratively with parents to allow children to maximise their opportunities to learn and develop.
Our Preschool School readiness Program also incorporates Letterland as a big focus on Phonics, and Reading Eggs as an extension of learning toward phonics and writing and reading skills. In Term 3, School Homework Books are introduced to the children to extend their writing and reading skills to prepare them for Primary School.
We will be able to work with you to cater to your child’s individual needs and enable you to make the right choice for your child. Within our School Readiness Program, the Teachers and children use a range of digital media, to enhance their learning by providing the latest technology, which include Smart Boards, IPads and Bluetooth Headphones. By incorporating these digital medias in our school readiness, we are giving our children the opportunity to discover and explore the digital media world, in an educational way. Within each of our classroom, there are the latest LED Flat Screens - which are connected to Apple TV.
In relation to our learning projects, these media devices, link the children to the real world when studying their learning topics through viewing documentaries that relate to their projects. It allows children to have the exposure to real life occurrences, making their learning topics and projects more meaningful.
