PE4K Childcare School Readiness

PE4K’s School Readiness Program prepares children (academically, physically, socially and emotionally) for the changes they can expect, and will need to adjust to, when they start school. The Program includes:

  • Early literacy concepts such as recognising letters and learning to write their name 
  • Early numeracy concepts such as number recognition, counting, shapes and colours 
  • Simple science projects that give children opportunities to observe, question, infer and explain 
  • Using iPads and computers 
  • Language skills so that children can understand teachers’ instructions, and also be able to share their knowledge and express their needs to teachers and peers
  • Gross motor skills such as being able to climb, balance and jump on the playground 
  • Fine motor skills such as holding a pencil and using scissors 
  • Social skills such as making friends, playing cooperatively, following the rules of a game
  • Emotional resilience to cope with transitions from one activity to another, being able to deal with not winning, and following teachers’ instructions when they do not want to do so 
  • Self-help skills such as unwrapping lunch, looking after their own belongings, and toileting.
