'School readiness' is a term that is often used these days to describe the preparation of children to enter formal education, typically kindergarten/prep/foundation. This preparation may involve various aspects of a child's development, such as social, emotional, cognitive, and physical skills. The idea is to provide children with the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed in school and to foster a love of learning.
This short PD helps educators get students truly school ready and give them a step ahead in their literacy development.
Designed for early childhood educators who want to give their children the very best start, this course is inclusive for children with speech sound disorders who may not yet be able to say certain sounds.
The course includes downloadable resources that can be used in the early education setting straight away.
This PD has been created by qualified speech pathologists, in collaboration with early childhood and kindergarten teachers.
This course is suitable for all early years education staff, kindergarten/prep teachers and learning support officers. There is no pre-requisite for this course. However, if you don’t feel confident knowing children’s speech and language milestones, we suggest that you also enrol in the course: Speech and Language Development in the Early Years; Identifying, Evaluating and Supporting.
