School Readiness

School readiness is about a child's personal, social and emotional readiness to access all that school has to offer them. 

 Year R teachers and pre-school staff have put together Ten Top Tips for starting school, to help your child develop key skills ready for Year R in September. Don’t worry if your child does not have these skills yet – they can develop them over time. This list is just some ways you can help them prepare during the summer before school starts. Scroll down to view the Top 10 Tips for Starting School.
