10 Ways to Reinforce School Readiness at home

Written by Donna Botfield on . Posted in School Readiness

We are often asked ‘What can we do at home to develop our child’s School Readiness Skills?’

Home preparation in School Readiness is different to how we teach School Readiness in our classes.

This difference is important.

Children in the preschool age range need to be developing their social and emotional skills at home and preschool settings.  They need to learn through play and exploration.

The academic skills we encourage during school readiness classes are provided in enough detail during the class.  EDSpecially4U classes offer structured learning activities as an introduction to school, but they are not how your child should spend the majority of their week.

There are some nice ways that you can reinforce the learning from our classes through play and exploration.

ED Specially 4U recommends these activities

Getting Ready 4 School- Term 4

Written by Donna Botfield on . Posted in School Readiness

Welcome to Term 4! This is always our busiest term with many new students joining our classes in preparation for classes or starting school next year. It is such an exciting term, and the lead up to Christmas is so busy that this term always rushes by too quickly.

Our School Readiness program gives our students exposure to the academic skills they will further develop at BIG school. As always we recommend that you spend some time reinforcing the skills that we have taught each week.  Please refer to any of our hand outs and information

Don’t forget to discuss any other academic ideas with your teacher or refer to our website www.edspecially4u.com.au to see other games and resources to reinforce your child’s academic learning.

For our students who are heading to BIG school next year, I have compiled a list of other suggestions to develop your child’s social and emotional skills in preparation for the exciting times ahead.
