SCHOOL READINESS PROGRAM

SCHOOL READINESS PROGRAM

In the interest in best preparing each child with the skills to start school, Rutherford Playtime Preschool has consulted professionals from local primary schools, referred to the outcome of the board of education and arranged annual information evenings with professionals from the school system to provide carers and teachers with relevant and up to date information on school readiness.

We Provide a strong focus on socialization, literacy (pre-writing, pre reading, appreciation and understanding of the importance and relevance of the written word), autonomy, fostering curiosity and a passion for learning. It is our role as pre-school teachers to familiarise children with experiences relating Early Years Framework to help prepare them for the transition to School.

SCHOOL READINESS PROGRAM

  • Pre- numeracy activities, As part of our everyday play and exploration children are encouraged to discuss, explore and practise mathematical skills concept; counting and fractions (whole, Part, half) in an informal manner.
  • Science and Technology – we aim to foster the children’s passion for thinking, investigating and exploring by asking reflective questions, challenging to put forward theories and further define them and reach conclusions through a variety of investigative techniques (practical experimentation, research, internet, text, professionals, diagrams, ect.)
  • English , Literature- Through our morning formal group experiences, discussion, reflection, meet and greet, the children are given the opportunity within a supportive and nurturing environment to talk in front of small group of their peers and teachers to build self-esteem and confidence. Children are encouraged to show respect for their teachers and peers by being attentive and active listeners (ask questions and to be involved in group discussion)
  • Social Structure, Culture, Human Society and it’s Enviroment - Through our small and large group experiences we provide children with the opportunity to identify and discuss ”personal significant events, places and people and compare these with peers”and teachers. We foster this through photos from home, formal and informal discussion about events that are upcomingeg. Birthdays, Holidays, excursions ect and past events from the weekend, previous day, night, this provides children with the opportunity to use “language associated with time change and place” as well as identify with and foster and appreciation for diversity.
  • Creative Arts, Visual Arts, Music, Drama & Dance - Children are provided with a wide variety of both natural and man made creative media for them to freely explore, experiment and familiarise themselves with, while developing an expanding variety of artistic techniques. A wide variety of art books and prints depicting various media styles and artist are displayed and available throughout the room to promote discussion and inspiration and develop the children’s understanding of what art is.
