Ready for
‘big school’!

Transitioning to school can be a tricky journey for your child as much as it can be for you the parent/care giver. To make the process smoother we run a school readiness program which focuses heavily on the school’s requirements.

We help all our children develop the confidence to embrace the exciting challenge of “big school”.

Our preschool program is centred around readying your child for school. We look at different key areas and take note on how your child is progressing as well as asking the child and the caregivers both put forward their thoughts and suggestions. All this information is compiled and given to the child’s future school to ensure the smoothest of transitions.

We have an in depth, holistic approach to school readiness programs with weekly focuses. We run this program alongside school terms, with weekly (fun) homework to help children become confident and create a routine in preparation for primary school.

We work closely with local primary schools, hosting information nights at the service and liaising with teachers to ensure we’re providing the best start for each child according to their future teachers. We encourage parent participation at the service and at home, with homework sheets that display children’s developing confidence and include families in their learning.

We include a Jolly Phonics program to help children link sound, sight and creation of English letters.

Our Dundas ELC school readiness program is non-compulsory and children and families are welcome to choose to participate at their own level.
