School readiness programs at Thrive Early Learning centres
we understand that starting school is a significant event in the life of children and their families. We know that children who make a positive start to school are more likely to:
- Feel comfortable, relaxed and valued.
- Feel excited and motivated to learn
- Have good relationships with others
- Develop a sense of belonging within the school community
Concept of ‘Readiness’
There is a misconception that children need to be ready in a developmentally and academic manner and this implies that children are made ready.
There is no standard for which children need to meet to be accepted into school.
Every child is unique and will reach their developmental milestones and outcomes in their own time.
Every play experience is part of school preparation!
