School Readiness at Great Start Kindergarten
The School Readiness Program prepares your child to successfully make the important transition from 4 year old Kindergarten into Primary School. A smooth transition from Kindergarten to school lays the foundation for future positive learning experiences.
We encompass a range of specific content rich experiences within our kindergarten curriculum that reflect the Early Years Learning Framework as well as the Australian School Curriculum. This has specific learning areas that enable children to become successful, confident and creative individuals and active and informed citizens. As well as the outcomes listed earlier these learning areas include; Language & Literacy, Numeracy, Science, Humanities, Arts, Technology, Health and Physical Education.
The year before children transition to Primary School is crucial for so many reasons. It is important for children to start Kindergarten with the basic foundations for literacy and numeracy, including how to recognise their name and possibly even write it. To be able to possibly recognise numerals and count with meaning. We are confident that the children who participate in our Kindergarten Program will feel confident as they start their first year of school as social, confident, resilient, independent children. This includes being able to share, co-operate in a variety of situations, look after their belongings, negotiate with peers during conflict situations and concentrate on a task for long periods of time.
Through a holistic approach to school readiness we believe the children will be more prepared for school as they will have had time to develop the life skills necessary to aid for a smooth transition into their Primary School journey. Through our Kindergarten Program, we support and help prepare the children for the next step in their educational achievements.
