The fact is that school readiness – that stage when your child can transition to school with ease – will often depend more on emotional and social factors than academic ones.
Our approach to being ‘school ready’ helps children enter school with confidence. We give them the tools they need to build their language, enhance their literacy and numeracy, think creatively and develop social-emotional skills they need to cope.
We recognise that every child is different and develops at their own pace. So your educator will work with you every step of the way to ensure your child is ready for school.
A lot of school readiness is about social and emotional maturity – and this can’t be fast-tracked. So it’s important that each child receives a personalised approach to learning that suits their specific needs and interests. This is central to our aim of making every child school-ready.

These are some of the factors that help determine school readiness:
