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.

Different teachers and schools have varying expectations of their school starters. In this video, I share some of the common skills and characteristics that teachers are looking for in their Kindy and Prep students and explain how to find out what skills your child’s teacher will value next year.

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!
