Little TRACers - Kindergarten Readiness Program

Students enrolled to start Kindergarten in 2021 will be invited to attend to take part in the Kindergarten Readiness Program.

Step 1: Kindergarten Readiness Conference

Getting to know you and your child.

 

Duration: 20 minutes

 

Who: Child and Parent/s or Guardian/s

 

Where: The Riverina Anglican College Library

 

We recognise that starting ‘Big School’ is a major milestone for a child and their family.The Kindergarten Readiness Program has been developed to ensure a smooth transition to our Junior School.

 

These fun activities will include:

* Draw, Discuss, Reflect
* Colouring and cutting
* Number and sound game

 

These are aimed at discovering and observing student’s:

* Interests and passions
* Reflective thinking skills
* Response and communication
* Descriptive language
* Ability to understand and follow simple instructions
* Fine motor skills
* Number, colour and sound recognition

 

Throughout this conference children will also engage in conversation which will centre upon their likes and dislikes, feelings about going to school, and their interests.

 

At The Riverina Anglican College we acknowledge parents as the ‘first educator’ of their children. Parents/Guardians will be given the opportunity to share parent insights by completing a Parent Insight form. This invaluable knowledge helps us make connections for learning and ensure your child’s nurturing learning experience is individualised.
