One of the biggest decisions families make is where to send their child to school. At Wyong Christian Community School, we understand and value the importance of the early schooling years, as these set the foundations for your child to thrive in their future endeavours.
A significant factor when children commence school is their readiness. Some children may have turned 5 but are not yet ready for school life. Children need to be socially and emotionally ready in order to flourish within an educational community.
Below is a guide taken from learningpotential.gov.au to help you decide if your child is ready for Kindergarten in 2023:
Being able to get along with other children, demonstrate basic manners, assert themselves, and being able to play independently as well as with other children.
Being able to manage their emotions, cope with minimal adult contact in large groups, focus on tasks, follow directions and instructions from teachers, cope with the stress of the new school environment, and understand the rules.
Being able to talk and listen to adults and other children, speak clearly, communicate needs, understand stories, and begin to identify some letters and sounds.
Basic number sense, basic thinking skills, being able to wait and take turns.
Physical health and coordination
Basic health, fine motor skills (such as being able to grip a pencil and turn pages in a book) and physical coordination (being able to run, jump, climb, and play ball).
Basic skills to manage their needs without adult supervision, such as going to the toilet, dressing, unwrapping their lunch and managing their belongings.
Providing education for three decades, Wyong Christian Community School embraces students and their families into our school community.
Our school has dedicated teachers who consider teaching to be more than just a career. It is our ministry to develop each child to their full potential and equip them with the skills, knowledge and character needed to be responsible, accomplished and compassionate members of the community.
Our solid academic programs are taught from a biblical world view and our students achieve outstanding results in the HSC. Christian principals are imparted throughout the school day and students are provided with creative arts, sporting and academic extension opportunities.
Our Kindergarten enrolments are open for 2023 and beyond, and we would welcome your family’s enquiry. In Semester 2, we will commence our Transition to School program. During this program, the children are supported, observed and assessed to determine where they are developmentally, socially and emotionally. This will help us to form classes to best place your child in the 2023 Kindergarten cohort.
At Wyong Christian Community School, we run personalised tours at a time that suits your family. We also hold Open Days twice per year.
We would love to hear from you and take you for a tour to experience our school community. For more information, please visit our website at www.wyongccs.nsw.edu.au or call us on 4351 2020.
