SCHOOL READINESS PROGRAM

A program targeting many school readiness skills!

Program outline:

  • The program is set up and run replicating a school classroom environment.

  • Children follow typical classroom routines such as lining up, putting away their belongings

    and sitting with a group on the mat.

  • Visual schedules are used to aid transitions between activities.

  • Brain gym is used each day of the program. This provides specific activities to facilitate

    brain function for physical skills required for activities such as reading, writing & spelling.

  • Social thinking strategies are incorporated into the day via stories, songs and posters.

  • Children receive support from the Occupational Therapist to support their fine motor

    skills, correct pencil grip, pre-writing skills, letter formation and cutting skills.

  • Pre-Literacy skills are developed daily by the Speech Pathologist.

  • Gross motor skill activities are incorporated to assist in coordination, balance and strength

    (all required for effective fine motor skill use).

  • Children learn behaviours such as transitioning, following instructions, and completing tasks independently, sharing resources and problem solving in a supported environment.

Bookings and payment in advance required as spaces are limited.
