School Readiness Toolkit (Kit Three)
This is a great gift idea for the kid who has everything! Or maybe for the family who asked for ‘no toys’ or maybe the new mum who now has a new baby! These kits have been carefully designed by qualified teachers, to assist with preparing your child for school, developing confidence and building a love of learning.
These kits have been carefully designed by two experienced teacher-mums, who understand that you might not be a teacher yourself, but that you still want the best for your child and that you want to make sure your child is ready (all-round) for school.
Each kit contains a term’s worth (10 weeks) of re-useable, tangible, quality resources and over 30 activities that will help to develop confidence and a love of learning.
Kit 3 aims to develop skills including: sorting and classifying, subitising, one-to-one correspondence, listening, movement, spatial awareness, gross motor and body strength, balance and coordination, fine motor skills, appreciation for our world, imagination, creativity, social and emotional skills, features of a book, oral language, comprehension, vocabulary, rhyming, beginning sounds and more. These kits include products from other local, small businesses such as My Little Plot and My Little Set.
WHY THESE KITS?
We strongly believe that preparing your child for school is so much more than printables and tracing, so we have included learning experiences to develop so much more. Our Toolkits cover skills such as: fine and gross motor skills, reading foundations, writing foundations, problem solving skills, language skills, math foundations and assist with social and emotional development.
You will also find simple and easy to follow teaching guides and tips for parents. We know a lot of you aren’t classroom teachers, but you ARE your child’s first teacher. We want to give you the confidence and knowledge to be able to teach your child, show you what is important for school readiness and guide you through some wonderful one-on-one time with your little one before they head off to school full time.
WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE IN EACH KIT
- Learning resources and activities that will last 10 weeks

LEARNING THROUGH PLAY
The resources and activities in these kits have been included as we feel they promote learning through hands-on experiences that are often open-ended. We look at story telling, rhyming, beginning sounds, one-to-one correspondence, visual discrimination, shapes, colours, numbers, mindfulness, fine and gross motor, correct pencil grip, pre-writing skills, memory, listening skills, concentration, value of number, recall of events, self-help skills, imagination and creativity and lots more!
FROM KIRSTY AND ALY
As qualified teachers and mums, we started designing, planning and building these kits to help ease parents’ minds and assist with preparing children for school. We know what it’s like as busy mums and how difficult it can be to find the time to plan and prepare things to do with your child, not to mention the big, black hole that is ‘Google’! And as teachers of the early years, we see a lot of children coming to school who are not yet ready or have been pushed to learn incorrect or unnecessary things. We want your little one to feel confident and well-prepared when they start school, and we want to provide you with some of the tools to enable this. You are your child’s first teacher and we are passionate about assisting you with this.
