We are holding an information session to be facilitated by Child Psychologist, Ida Shapievsky.
What is 'School Readiness' anyway, and who decides?
This is one of a series of Information Sessions that we have planned, to help provide you with tools to assist your child in their (and your) transition to school. The next session will be Thursday 28th June, with a Teacher from Ramsgate Public School - please save the date.
Please make this a priority. We would love to see at least one parent from each family for this interesting and valuable discussion, and an opportunity to ask questions.
Light refreshments will be served.
Last weekend several of us attended the 2012 Early Years Exhibition & Conference at Rosehill. We attended three seminars:
The final seminar was presented by the President of Child Care NSW, Vicki Skoulogenis, entitled Rethinking School Readiness. Vicki's passion for Early Learning was amazing.
What does 'school readiness' mean to you?
School Readiness is a major area of interest for many families, however the definition and expectation changes dramatically from one family to another. We all want our children to be given the best possible start in life, and to learn those valuable skills that will help them be at ease in any environment. But how is that best achieved? A good start is to make sure we are all on the same page.
Vicki's presentation is attached below - we encourage you to have a look and approach us with any questions or comments.
