School Readiness: January holiday workshops prepare little kids for ‘big school’

Is your son or daughter starting school in 2015? At Kids First, our combined team of teachers, speech pathologists and occupational therapists is helping kids prepare for ‘big school’ with 3 days of learning and fun in January.

When your child ‘graduates’ from preschool in mid-December, it will more than six before Kindergarten starts.

That’s a long time spent away from the routines of learning and opportunities to interact with other kids of the same age.

This January, the Kids First team is giving 2015 Kindy students the chance to make a confident start to school with a morning program that will help them get into the swing of life at school.

Each two and half hour session, which will be similar to a morning session at school, will be filled with activities that will develop your child’s:

  • Independence and self-reliance
  • Phonological awareness, sounds and letter recognition
  • Early numeracy, number recognition and counting
  • Fine motor skills
  • Gross Motor Coordination
  • Social and communication skills

A maximum of 8 places is available in this 3 day workshop. Children must attend all three dates to receive maximum benefit from this program.
