What is School Readiness and Why is it Important?

School Readiness is a widely used term referring to a child’s preparedness for any easy and successful transition to formal schooling. However, a quality school readiness program should not replicate a day at a typical school; this approach is supported by a growing evidence base and is also supported by teachers within school settings. Instead of teaching children academic skills, Early Years educators agree that it’s much more important for children to develop social, emotional and physical skills whilst instilling a natural curiosity and love of learning. By providing children with these foundation skills and establishing connections between families and schools, children will have the best opportunity to adjust to a school environment and reach their learning potential.

As a parent, you can assist with this transition by being prepared for a bit of a bumpy start. These strategies can help your child to adjust to a new baby in the family.
