Event description

Description

This playgroup is designed and run by a paediatric Occupational Therapist with a focus on developing school readiness skills. Areas that will be covered include postural control, hand dominance, fine motor skills, visual perceptual skills, visual motor skills, pencil and scissor skills and self-care.

Each week we will consider a new skill by having a short parent information session, followed by time to play with games and toys that target that particular skill. There will be a short morning tea break each week to practice opening lunchboxes and wrappers and using water fountains.

By coming along to this playgroup you will:

Increase your knowledge of what background skills or ‘infrastructure’ young school age children need in order to increase their sense of success and independence in the prep classroom

Develop skills and confidence to choose activities at home to develop your child’s skills in preparation for prep

Understand how some of these skills are used during classroom activities such as handwriting, cutting and self-care tasks

Meet other families with children the same age

Increase your child’s familiarity with the school environment.

This playgroup is open to all children starting prep in 2018, no matter which school they are attending.
