At Successful Learning your preschooler can have the opportunity to practice the skills they’ll need for a smooth and successful transition into kindergarten and their school career.

The Successful Learning School Readiness Program is an individually tailored program consisting of one-on-one sessions with an experienced kindergarten teacher. During the first session, your child’s learning needs and skills will be assessed to ensure the rest of the program is tailored to their individual learning requirements. Each subsequent session will consist of activities covering a combination of both practical and academic skills that will be required in the kindergarten classroom.

Some examples of skills that may be included in the school readiness program are:
