Our Fantail Flyers school readiness program has been created by our experienced and qualified team, in collaboration with the new entrant teachers of our local schools.
Special attention is given to not just word recognition, numeracy and vocabulary but also concentration, working in a group and routines. As part of the program Fantails will provide lunchboxes and drink bottles to help with this change of routine as children enter school.
Our aim is to build confidence so children can move comfortably into "big school".
