Preparing children for school requires educators to spend quality time with children and follow their interests, using them as the basis for all extended learning activities and environments to further children's knowledge and life-skills.
Our school readiness lessons cover literacy and numeracy concepts inspired and tailored to your child’s interests. Lesson planning will be adjusted week by week depending on the group of students, to ensure children are engaged and motivated to build on their knowledge and skills.
Sessions will provide students with an opportunity to build on their social skills in small groups of 6-8 children. Children will also have the opportunity to question, clarify, discuss and extend their knowledge at a deeper level than is possible in a whole class environment.
The school readiness learning environment allows children to explore, inquire and feel confident. Miss B's approach is inspired by Reggio Emilia which strongly believes that the environment is the third teacher. This encourages children to explore their interests, collaborate with other children openly, and learn from their experiences. The learning space is welcoming and aesthetically pleasing.
