DID YOU KNOW...?

Readiness for school has five parts:

  • Physical health and well being
  • Social skills
  • Emotional maturity
  • Language and thinking skills
  • Communication and general knowledge

Parent, caregivers and communities all play a big role in children being ready for school.

CHILDREN WHO ARE READY FOR SCHOOL:

  • Are eager to try new things
  • Have a better chance at future school successes
  • Are curious about the world
  • Have developed some ways of coping with disappointment
  • Have developed some self control
  • Have good language skills
  • Can communicate their needs to other people

PROGRAM COMPONENTS

The five domains of early development as set out in the Early Development Instrument (EDI) are:

Physical Health and Well-Being

Social Competence

Emotional Maturity

Language and Cognitive Development

Communication Skills & General Knowledge

We focus on these domains by building each class around a subject:

Literacy Skills

Math and Science

Art and Music

Physical Awareness

Cultural Knowledge

Community Awareness

Parental Involvement is an important part of the program. Parents do not attend with their child but are actively involved throughout the year.
