School Ready Program
Learn and Leap’s ‘School Ready Program’ prepares 4-year old preschool children for their first year of school. The program helps to develop social skills and routines, as Kindergarten does, but also teaches very specific phonological awareness skills which are the basis for the successful development of reading and spelling.
The School Ready Program is ideal for students who have already undertaken the Little Learners Love Literacy® Program as a 3 or for 4-year old. Students need to have a solid understanding of letter/sound relationships.
The School Ready Program is delivered using hands-on activities and experienced-based learning methods. It is multisensory in approach and uses evidence-based programs such as “Nessy” and ‘A Sound Way’ to extend the student’s skills and knowledge.
The sessions are run in small groups by a qualified and highly experienced Literacy Coach. They are held for 1 hour per week in line with the school terms.
