- Ready to Learn

READY to LEARN starts at birth with the support of parents and other important adults who care for them. 

Children are READY to LEARN when they can play with their friends and interact with the familiar adults in their lives, learn new skills, try things out and can cope emotionally and physically with new challenges that school life brings.

If your child is READY to LEARN by the time they reach formal schooling (reception class) it is more likely that they will learn, grow and succeed throughout their school life and beyond.

As their parent/carer, you are your child’s first play mate and teacher. Practising the tips, ideas and activities on these pages will really help them to enjoy learning, feel good about themselves and be happy, healthy and ready to start nursery or school.
