Hello and WELCOME to our school readiness program where one of our resident leading experts, Sonja Walker, talks us through everything we need to know about our children starting school.

Your child’s ability to interact and get along with other children will be crucial to their success at school next year. In this video, I share ideas for helping your child to make friends, as well as a free social skills checklist that you can download and use at home.

We will be releasing a new video each day for 25 days so please join us to learn all you need to know about starting school!

  • I think as parents we tend to stress way too much about our children and their abilities re school. Let each child learn at their own pace.


  • Harder to teach than reading and writing I think.


  • Great, thanks so much for the valuable info.


  • These videos are helpful, I wish they existed 30 years ago…


  • Social skills are very important for school readiness.


  • This isn’t a problem- with four children and all competitive, they learnt early that they wouldn’t get they own way and I made sure the eldest lost occasionally when we played together too, so he could be more caring of his younger siblings. It worked.


  • I kept my son in kinder for an extra year due to his not being quite ready for school in a social context. It’s truly one of the best things i’ve ever done. :)


  • i will go through this list and check out these points. this info is super handy to know and even share with other mums who aren’t quite certain either.


  • Lke xs


  • Thank you so much. So very helpful
