Give your child the tools to be ready for starting Kindy in 2020

The Den (Derrick Ernst Neighbourhood Centre) is excited to announce that we will be running the popular School Readiness program again this January.  This program has been very successful over the last four years.

The course runs over 3 weeks and is taught by an Early childhood teacher.  The classes will give your child essentials skills which will be extremely useful when beginning their school journey.

Examples of what they will learn are:

– Language Skills: Name recognition, days of the week, colour recognition

– Maths Skills: Identifying shapes, count by 1’s, number identification and number writing

– Physical Skills: Dressing themselves and putting their shoes on, can use the toilet and wash their hands by themselves, opening their lunchbox, scissor skills

– Social and Emotional skills: Communication guidance on talking to friends and  teachers, resilience, self-help skills

The course runs over three weeks on Tuesday and Thursday.  Ideally, your child should attend every session.
