The most important part about pre-schooling or "school readiness", is the social and emotional maturity of the children.
Children need to be able to cope with the every day demands of school; being able to listen and follow through on instructions, work as part of a small or large group, develop appropriate negotiation and conflict resolution skills and finally to be responsible for their own belongings and to encourage a love of learning.
The group times are focussed on development of skills and education and the interests of the children, encouraging them to concentrate for longer periods, to follow instructions and be involved in discussions and participate in group time experiences.
Literacy and numeracy activities are part of the everyday routine, and involve the children recognising their own names, writing their names on their art work, listening to stories, counting the number of children present for the day, playing number games and playing music and singing songs that involve participants. (eg ten in the bed, five cheeky monkeys, etc).
