School Readiness Program
Little Lion Early Learning aims to ensure a smooth transition from childcare setting to school environment for all children. We begin this process not only with the older groups but across all ages starting from our babies group. We also aim to provide families with guidance and advice to ensure the transition to school a positive experience for all children and families.
Our curriculum incorporates a range of strategies to ensure the school readiness program is been implemented:
· Providing designed curriculum that encourages critical thinking, investigation and exploration, problem solving, self-expression and social interactions.
· Providing activities that is designed to enhance group learning as well as targeting each individual child’s needs and personal goals.
· Allowing children to gain a positive experience and understand different aspects of school and that school is a safe and enjoyable place through:
o Reading and writing programs, alphabets, mathematical concepts
o Reading stories about going to school
o School uniform dress ups/dramatic role play
o Learning to write and holding pencils correctly
o Using scissors and glue
o Provide scaffolding to develop self-help skills e.g. putting clothes and shoes on unassisted, going to the bathroom and washing hands, eating and drinking etc.
