The school readiness group uses a range of evidence-based activities but also with an emphasis on having fun together and making new friends.  The group covers:

  • listening and following  instructions
  • joining in and being part of a group
  • lining up and cooperating
  • taking turns
  • sharing information (for example “morning talks”)
  • having conversations with friends
  • enjoying recess time

Midway through the session, we break for “recess”.
