On demand webinar:
School Readiness - Developmental considerations for multiples

Find out what is key in determining if your multiples are ready for school.

In this webinar, you will hear about key considerations for a child transitioning to school, including what is developmentally expected of a child at 4 and 5 years old. The importance of play underpinning the development of essential school transition skills and the impact of screen time will be discussed. Tips and strategies to promote the development of ‘school readiness’ skills will be explored and the context of COVID-19 considered.

Finally, we will explore some of the key concerns that parents of multiples face in the preparation for transition to school including classroom placement for multiples and whether their child is ready or not.
