Learning – School Readiness
"All children are observed on a regular basis. Their development across all areas such as social skills, communication skills and fine and gross motor skills is documented in their individual portfolio"
Our professional staff support children's learning through play by becoming co-players, guiding and role modelling. They provide new experiences for children to enrich and extend play, pose challenging questions and encourage children to learn from one another.
Transition to school
At Noah's Ark we obtain positive feedback from our local schools each year on how confident and socially competent our students are, making them successful learners as they transition to school.
"My son has found the transition into school effortless thanks to the social skills and school readiness programs offered by Noah's Ark. It has been the perfect stepping stone into big school" Parent - Sue Wiblin
This success is partly due to the 10 week social program (PALS) that our service runs with all students. The program promotes valuable skills for life. The school readiness program is developed by our highly trained and experienced early childhood teachers and has an excellent reputation in our community.
