Balmain care for Kids provides an accredited preschool program, our students with school readiness that prepares them for entering the primary school system. Parents and the preschool staff share a role in making children feel safe and secure as they move to a new educational setting. Sometimes children may be ready for this programme at an early age i.e 4 years of age and that is why our school readiness programme is integrated throughout our daily activities and structure of the day. Our aim is to promote lifelong learners; our programmes will be adapted to the children’s individual needs to ensure the children are emotionally ready to enter primary school.
Children will be provided with a variety of experiences in their daily programme that will help make the transition to school a positive experience. School readiness is done every day by every child according to their needs and level of understanding. Many of the terms and routines we use are there to assist the parents as well.
Staff will endeavour to create partnerships between Balmain Care for Kids and the local schools in our community to ensure an open exchange of information and understanding regarding particular entry requirements.
