Starting school is a big milestone – for parents and children. It’s a big step up from Kinder and we want it to go smoothly for everyone.  After all there’s 13 years of it so it’s important to make the best start possible!!

Our popular group ‘Get Prepped’ helps children and their families get ready to jump straight in to school with confidence.

The program consists of:

  • fun pre-reading and pre-writing activities
  • oral language skills to prepare for formal learning
  • beginning sound-letter links and early phonological awareness
  • social communication skills (social thinking skills)
  • practice at meeting new friends in a small group setting
  • opportunities to develop independence within a group
  • become familiar with school routines
  • to follow instructions confidently.

When – Term 4 – Once a week  – 1 hour on a Thursday
Cost $90

In the school holidays, the program is slightly different

Through the use of collaborative play and shared book reading, ‘Get Prepped’ targets the early skills needed for reading, listening and working with others. This years program has been set up to replicate a half school day, with the kids bringing along lunch in order to also participate in semi-structured lunchtime activities to facilitate play and social skills.
