How to Help Your Child Make a Successful Start to School
Are the pre-schoolers in your care ready to cope with demands of formal schooling next year?
While learning ABCs and 123s are all part of a child’s development, there are many other aspects of a child’s school readiness that parents and teachers need to consider before they head off to ‘big school’.
In fact, current research indicates that other factors, such as a child’s social and emotional maturity, communication skills and motor coordination all play a significant part in helping help to enjoy a successful start to school.
In this comprehensive presentation, Sonja provides parents and carers with information, tips and tools to support their child in the months before school starts.
This program is particularly helpful for families who are uncertain about whether to send their child to school, or worried that their child may not keep up with their peers.
