THE Southern Grampians Child and Family Network in Hamilton are hosting a kinder and school readiness forum for interested parents this Thursday.
The session will be a forum of teachers, kinder teachers, principals and other early years professional in the area, as well as interested parents, who will address the topic of school readiness.
They will discuss the issues which will impact on the success of a child entering school at the right stage in their development.
Hamilton North Kindergarten director, Chris Wildgoose said this was the third forum they were having as there were a lot of parents who were unsure what school readiness was.
“They think if they know their numbers and alphabet and how to write their name they are ready for school but it is more about the ability to cope with the things schools demand with you,” Ms Wildgoose said.
