At most early years settings, supporting children’s readiness for school tends to focus on developing the child’s skills so that they arrive at school ready to learn. At Little Stars Childcare Centre, leaders and staff recognise that parents and carers need help too. Supporting the whole family to be ready for school is reaping rewards as everyone develops the attitudes and skills needed to ensure that children quickly settle into and benefit from school life.
This example was published together with the survey report Are you ready? Good practice in school readiness.
