School Readiness - through the eyes of a child
If we think like a child, we might have these thoughts and abilities.
As a parent, you would hope that your child has all of these abilities. In reality, for many children the above list is a work in progress.
If you feel that your child maybe struggling to meet some of the ‘school readiness’ markers there is plenty of help on hand through including your Health Visiting Team or GP, who are well placed to provide the early support you need to guide your children through the transition from toddlerhood, pre-school years and on into later childhood.
For children who attend a nursery, pre-school or childminder settings where the Early Years Foundation Stage or similar is implemented, there is ample opportunity for children to learn, grow and thrive. These settings also provide the ideal environment for identifying any potential issues that may take longer to resolve or may require professional input in order for a child to become ‘school ready’. These settings provide us with a folder which charts your child’s development.
