Getting Ready for School

Dear Families, Just a friendly reminder that this event is coming up.

Be Ready Roadshow Starting School 2020

We have after consultation, developed a new format for the Starting School Expo which means we bring a road show to you, making it easier to attend in your area and with minimal set up. The road show will come to 3 locations across the Eurobodalla in March 2019.

Narooma Wednesday 27, Batemans Bay Thursday 28, Moruya Friday 29, of March, 6.00 – 8.00pm at the local libraries.

Research on transitioning to school, shows the more community engagement the greater the overall outcomes for families. It’s an opportunity to promote your service and support the success of children starting school in the Eurobodalla.

All you have to do is come along with information about your school/service and talk to parents about what you have to offer and what they need to consider with their child starting school.

There will be an expert panel to give parents an opportunity to hear from a variety of knowledgeable people about school readiness. Dr Kristy Goodwin will be on the panel in Batemans Bay and Moruya. Dr Kristy is a children’s technology and development expert, speaker, and author on raising healthy happy kids in a digital age.  It is hoped that with thoughtful discussion and question/answer time, we as a community will support successful outcomes for families of future kindergarteners. Dr Kristy has suggested that she could also do some professional learning for educators,(she is a NESA-endorsed provider) during this visit and we have already covered the logistics cost to have her come to the area so you would be only have to cover her cost for your session. How fantastic would that be to have her at your centre, one on one with your staff.
