Prep Readiness

“The more I can predict what my mouth and body will do in different situations, the better control I will have. How can I learn to predict? By repeating and practising games, tasks, song, phrases and daily routines in familiar environments where I feel safe and confident in myself”.


The main changes for a child starting school includes the differences between a child’s current setting (eg. home, day care, kindergarten) and the primary school they will be attending.


The Prep Readiness program at Wynnum Family Day Care & Education Service focuses on equipping children with the skills to cope with these changes and to equip them with new strategies, strengths and abilities to achieve success in the prep environment.


The Prep –Readiness program is designed to:

  • improve pre-movement fine and gross motor skills
  • Improve participation in motor skills activities.
  • Enhance children’s sense of social/emotional wellbeing.

The Prep Readiness program:

  • Consists of a registered early childhood teacher delivering and providing children and educators with developmentally appropriate instruction that is multi-modal and manipulatives- based so that every child can experience success.
  • Delivers individualised, differentiated instruction for each child
  • Targets essential school readiness skills
  • Builds home-school- care environment connections through take-home learning activities.
