The School Readiness Program provides children with skills and knowledge through school-based experiences so they can enter school with confidence.
The School Readiness Program exists to provide support to children who require extra assistance in adopting school behaviours and routines that we take for granted. For those who are about to enter mainstream school and the classroom, this can often be a confronting and chaotic environment.
A classroom has been created at Inclusive Directions to prepare children for the mainstream school environment. Students are gradually introduced to commonplace school experiences in mock classrooms, followed by school-based support during their actual transition.
Inclusive Directions is a South Australian not for profit provider, supporting and empowering families and individuals living with:
- global developmental delay
- high and complex needs
- challenging behaviours
- intellectual disabilities
Starting on 11 September 2018 the program runs over a 12 week period in line with the school term. The children will ease into the transition with 2 x 3 hours days for the first six weeks. The program will then move to 3 x 4 hour days over the last six weeks to help build school readiness skills while offering a school experience not necessarily provided at kindergartens and preschools. The School Readiness Program will be run in the purpose-built classroom setting at Inclusive Directions Melrose Park.
