School Readiness for Pre-Schoolers

If your 4 or 5-year-old has been unable to attend preschool over the last couple of months, you may be concerned that they are missing out on developing some of the key skills needed to start school. Starting kindergarten is a new adventure for you and your child.  It is important that they are excited and proud to walk through the classroom door, ready to take their place in the ‘big kids’ school.

The Catholic Schools Office of Broken Bay has developed a range of resources featuring some helpful tips to assist you in preparing your child at home for kindergarten. Our Getting Ready booklet outlines a range of learning tools, each supported by an educational video, that will assist in helping to develop the necessary skills in your child to ensure a successful start to their schooling. To see our school readiness video tools please click here. (this links to this page https://www.csodbb.catholic.edu.au/schools/School-Readiness.

To receive your FREE getting ready bag including booklet and other fun activities please contact our school office on 9939 6699 to arrange for collection. Appointments for collection are required during COVID 19 restrictions.

If your child is ready for school, we’d love to welcome you to take a look around St John the Baptist Catholic Primary School via our Virtual Tour and read our Principal’s message. We are a popular school choice for local families.
