Our school readiness program has been developed using both the Early Years Learning Framework and NSW Kindergarten curriculum,
creating a strong link between the early learning environment and formal schooling.
Shadforth Cottage School Readiness Program;
- We are Mathematicians
- We are Scientists
- We are Artists
- We are Communicators
- We are a Community
- We are Active
The curriculum is delivered through a balance of teacher directed experiences and child initiated learning. Intentional teaching is deliberate and purposeful whilst also offering opportunities for collaborative learning through sustained shared thinking and problem solving. Children are given space and time to reflect on, revisit and navigate their learning through a range of resources and experiences.
The preschool participates in a number of additional activities which supports their school readiness program including:
GrowFit, Yoga and languages. The children also take part in a number of excursions and incursions throughout the year and have their own garden where they learn about the natural world and how to take care of living things.
