Grade R - School readiness has been defined as a broad term, which encompasses three aspects of development, namely school maturity, social maturity and emotional maturity.

A child can be considered to be school ready when he/she can meet the formal demands of school; more specifically, when he/she can cope with the school environment physically, perceptually, socially, emotionally and academically without undue stress.

Our Grade R workshops are designed to empower the educator to take the child on a learning journey.
