Disclaimer: This blog post has been written in paid partnership with Complete Childcare.
At Complete Childcare our ‘School Ready’ Programme prepares your child for starting the big wide world of primary school. The programme is based on collaborative work with teachers from schools and discussion about what they want to see in children moving from pre-school to school. Children need to be able to recognise their name – not just in beautiful typeface but also as mummy writes it on the label on their coat! They need to know that when the teacher is busy with the other children, that their friends may be a source of help.
Our experienced staff plan activities to develop children’s knowledge about ‘Big School’ covering a range of activities and topics giving them the emotional and practical skills they need to make a smooth transition to school.
Topics include phonics, literacy, hygiene, talking about themselves and their family, learning about the great outdoors, taking part in group activities, singing nursery rhymes and making healthy snacks.
The lead up to starting primary school can be an anxious time for both children and parents; we know things will be different but we help to build their self-confidence so the children face new challenges knowing that they will be fine!
Complete Childcare is a group of 14 day nurseries and pre-schools in Berkshire and Oxfordshire, with settings in Wokingham, Winnersh, Lower Earley, Bracknell, Reading, Newbury and Banbury.
