School Holiday Workshops – Ready, Set, School

School readiness support for new Kindy Kids

This January, help your child make a confident start to Kindergarten!

Ready Set School combines the expertise of Kids First’s psychologists, teachers, speech pathologists and occupational therapists with the experience of best-selling author of SCHOOL READY: A practical and supportive guide for parents with sensitive kids, Sonja Walker.

Give your son or daughter the support and encouragement of Sydney’s leading school readiness team so that your child feels confident as ‘big school’ begins.
