School Readiness

Preschool is a stepping stone to the next big stage in a child’s life and by attending an early learning preschool, children are able to experience a learning setting that is designed to be a transition from early childhood to primary school.

At The Learning Cottage, our school readiness program is developed in reference to The Early Years Framework in close relation to local schools, ensuring that children and families are provided with the necessary skills for their transition into school.

School readiness doesn’t necessarily mean that children need to be able to read, write and do basic maths before starting school. School readiness is about the development of the child, their ability to problem solve socially, regulate their emotions, and be confident in their actions while having the ability to participate and learn in a classroom setting.

At The Learning Cottage, we have university-qualified Childhood Teachers who develop and deliver the preschool program.
