Our Kindergarten Preparation Social Group is a group for children ages 3-5 years old which focuses on the preparation and integration of children into classroom life. It allows children to learn and develop key skills needed for a smooth transition into elementary school. Our ethos looks at using socialization as a means for learning skills such as listening and communicating whilst developing literacy, numeracy and fine motor skills such as tracing, writing and reading.

This group has a maximum of 4 children and 2 staff. This group run every Monday and Friday from 10am – 12pm.
