The School Readiness Program aims to develop the children’s developmental
skills in key learning areas, such as literacy, numeracy, creative arts and music
and self-help skills. These skills are deemed important and are critical in building
positive self-esteem, which will facilitate the child’s transition from a childcare
setting to the school environments.
Some key activities include name writing, numeracy games, reading, story
sequencing activities, board games, fine-motor activities, scissor skills, teamwork
and respect for rules and routines, to name a few.
The rigor of the School Readiness Program will typically intensify from the
second half of each year, so as to better prepare children for their Big Schools.
