Literacy & School Readiness

At Little Achievers Early Learning Centre we believe that children should be transitioned into school settings by giving children the opportunity to experience a “school-like’’ environment prior to attending a school setting. We believe by introducing children to a pre-kindy program, this will assist them when they begin school.Our School Readiness Program commences at the time your child is enrolled at our centre, regardless of their age, and represents a systematic and continuous approach to preparing each individual child for primary school.
