Preschool Readiness Program (2-3 years old):

Thank you for choosing Rising Star Preschool. We are so excited to help you and your child prepare for their preschool experience.

Our Preschool Readiness Program is to assure you that your child will make a smooth and successful transition into the preschool environment and its routines and expectations. These skill expectations include social, language, play, physical and self-care abilities. The development of the building block skills for preschool readiness allows preschool teachers to expand and further develop a child’s skills in the areas of social interaction, play, language, emotional development, physical skills, early literacy and numeracy and fine motor skills. The basic establishment of these skills in advance of entry to the preschool program typically affords the child a more successful entry to the preschool environment. This can reflect social interaction in making and keeping friends, self-care skills (such as toileting independence and being able to manage their lunchbox independently), emotional regulation to demonstrate age appropriate responses to frustration and to control tantrums, competent physical skills as the play they engage in when interacting with their peers (both independently and alone) as well as language skills for both listening (e.g. to group play instructions) as well as talking (with their friends).

What are the building blocks necessary to develop preschool readiness?

  • Self-regulation:The ability to obtain, maintain and change emotion, behavior, attention and activity level appropriate for a task or situation.
  • Sensory processing:Accurate processing of sensory stimulation in the environment as well as in one’s own body which effects attention, behavior and le
  • Receptive language (understanding):Comprehension of spoken language (vocabulary, instructions, questions, concepts) for group instructions as well as peer interaction.
  • Expressive language (using language):Formulating sentences that have age-appropriate grammar (e.g. using pronouns ‘he/she’ correctly) and word order, using specific vocabulary, and telling a simple story.
  • Articulation:The ability to clearly pronounce individual sounds in words and sentences.
  • Executive Functioning:Higher order reasoning and thinking skills (e.g. working out how to make the desired building, collecting the materials and overcoming challenges in the process).
  • Emotional development/regulation:The ability to perceive emotion, integrate emotion to facilitate thought, understand emotions and regulate emotions. It also means responding age appropriately to a frustration and managing to ‘contain’ tantrums or recovering quickly from an upset.
  • Social skills:Determined by the ability to engage in reciprocal interaction with others (either verbally or non-verbally), to compromise with others and to be able to recognize and follow social norms.
  • Planning and sequencing: The sequential multi-step task/activity performance to achieve a well-defined result.
