We empower kids

As a primary school teacher and parent, it is clear to me that when a child has been equipped with these fundamental skills, it shows in the classroom. Our school readiness classes aim to help your child with these basic, tangible skills to allow them to walk through the classroom door with confidence. 

Personalised approach

We take pride in delivering personalised attention and support to each child. With a maximum of six students per class, our program offers ample one-on-one teaching and assistance.

Session information

We currently offer seven weekly sessions held on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 9:45am to 11:15am, as well as Monday and Thursday afternoons from 1:00pm to 2:30pm. Our classes are suitable for children aged 3.5 to 5.5 years old.

During our classes, children will be exposed to a variety of engaging literacy and numeracy activities. However, our program is not solely focused on academics. We also understand the importance of developing the skills that support your child socially, emotionally and physically.

With small class sizes, personalised attention, and a focus on key foundational skills, your child will be equipped for a successful transition to primary school!
