As childminders we do our best to ensure a child is school ready for when they enter their reception year. Part of our job is to read to our mindees, ensure lots of mark making materials are readily available, monitor their pencil grasp and ensure they can follow instructions and routines.

These formative years shape a child’s future and it is imperative that we give children the opportunities they need and deserve.

 

Back to School…School Readiness

With the children I look after in the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) age range (birth to 5 years old), I am ultimately aiming to provide them with all the necessary skills for starting school.

Through all the activities we do, the resources I provide and the games we play we are establishing school readiness and a solid foundation for their future.

This road map is a great way to see if your child is on track for starting school.
