School Readiness is when a child is ready to make the transition to start school.
This can include children being able to:
๐ŸŽ Use the toilet independently
๐Ÿ Good attention and concentration
๐ŸŽ Good Language and Communication Skill
๐Ÿ Good Socia Skills and Emotional Development

The development of school readiness skills allows school teachers to expand and further develop a childโ€™s skills in the areas of social interaction, play, language, emotional development, physical skills, literacy and fine motor skills. Without these basic skills already established, children can very quickly find themselves playing โ€˜catch upโ€™ compared to their peers that are advancing more quickly.

School Readiness is extremely important to and we take lots of time to support the children in many ways Some of the ways we support this are through:
๐Ÿ– Developing their self care skills including - Toileting, self serve at meal times, dressing and undressing etc
๐Ÿ– Developing their social skills with group activities, Key person time and community links
๐Ÿ– Early Reading - once the children start pre-school they will be given a blue and then red reading book bag. These bags support early reading and phonics with books and activities to take home each week!
๐Ÿ– Daily Routine - this is followed from very early on in the nursery, it develops and becomes much more structured by the time children reach our pre-school room to allow them to be ready for the expectations of a school day!
๐Ÿ– Uniforms - we introduce our polo tops and pump bags to the children from 2 years and over. Although not compulsory it does help to get children ready for wearing school uniforms every day when they transition to school!
๐Ÿ– Independence - we encourage this throughout the day with all of our children, one of the ways this supports school readiness is the introduction of our Water Bottles - children are responsible for bringing these in each day and taking them home each night!

๐Ÿ“šStory Time ๐Ÿ“š

Reading a story is one of the most important things carers and teachers can do with children. Books and stories stimulate a child's imagination and expand their understanding of the world. It builds many foundational skills, introduces vocabulary and provides a model of fluent and expressive reading

At Ivy House we engage in Story Time every day as part of our daily routine, this happens in all of our classes from the Baby room right up to the Pre-school room.

Reading and storytelling is extremely important to us and all of our staff understand the benefits of story time and reading aloud with our children!
