School Readiness

Ready Set School

  • Is your child’s pre-school concerned about your son or daughter’s speech, fine motor or social skills?
  • Is your child bright (maybe even gifted) with an inquiring mind and a great memory?
  • Is your child shy and reluctant to speak up?
  • Is focus, attention and concentration an issue for your child?
  • Does your child resist activities like colouring and drawing?

Ready Set School is a popular school readiness program for children in Sydney's northern beaches

As a parent, you are likely to be the first to notice that your child may need a little extra help taking the step from pre-school to Kindergarten.

Kids First’s unique and popular Ready Set School Program is an intensive series of early learning, language and social skills experiences for children aged 4 to 5.

This program, developed by Kids First’s multi-disciplinary team of child psychologists, speech pathologists, occupational therapists and teachers focuses on your ‘whole child’.

The key advantage of Ready Set School lies in the individual attention that your child will receive from Kids First’s teachers and children’s health professionals.
