CANCELLED - 2018 Prep Readiness


It is with regret that I am cancelling the Prep Readiness Groups. Unfortunately I was unable to get a quorum of three in each group for them to run. I will be posting groups next year in January for the whole year with the hope extensive lead up will grow interest in group intervention.

    We give kids the best possible environment to learn.

    1.  Small group environment

    Groups are like very mini classrooms because there is only a few kids there.

    Small groups of 6-8, help kids be brave, ask questions & be involved in conversations.

    In the school classroom, often kids have difficult putting their ‘hand up’. They don’t want to be the only one out of 20-30 kids that doesn’t understand.

    In a group setting kids are more likely to take the skills they learn and use them in the kindy/ school environment.
