School Readiness Program
In the lead up to the exciting time of starting school, we want to ensure your child has a smooth and successful transition into Prep.
Our school readiness program is designed to immerse your child in activities that they will be exposed to in a primary school setting. Children enjoy engaging, hands-on activities as they explore phonics (sounds and how to produce them correctly), handwriting (correct pencil grip), reading skills, spelling and number work. The program is also designed to develop social and emotional skills, concentration and co-operation.
These skills assure confidence, excitement and success in your child’s first year of education. Our School Readiness Program gives children a head start so new learning is easier to consolidate and extend – for overall higher results.
After attending our program, many parents have advised their child has commenced Prep being almost 12 months in advance according to their pre-school testing.
What an amazing establishment and program to have at our fingertips. Miss Jo is one of the most enthusiastic and nurturing educators I have had the pleasure of meeting. My 5 year boy has soared through kinder with real confidence and is set to tackle prep next year. With the support and guidance of Jo, he can confidently read, spell, write his name and key words, count to 100, count by 2s, 5s and 10s and has even started simple addition and subtraction. My 7 year old (grade 1) has a real love of mathematics and has been encouraged to relish in this gift through the support of Jo and his other incredible Educators Amna and Veronica. My kids skip in and out of their classes with a smile each week. I cant thank such an incredible team enough.
ABC to VCE provides a nurturing and creative learning environment and I would highly recommend their services. They go above and beyond. A big thank you to all the incredible staff, I don’t know where we’d be without you!
A massive thanks to Ms Jo and her amazing team at ABC to VCE for having our gorgeous girl overcome her fear of maths in no time at all. Her confidence now compared from when she started a few months ago with Ms Jo is unbelievable!! She is more confident in class as well as outside of the classroom and not shying away from answering questions around maths. Words cannot express how proud we are of Isabella and how thankful we are to have found a spot for her at ABC to VCE. From our very first interaction with Ms Jo she has been so very supportive to both Isabella as well as us her parents. A HUGE THANK YOU again
Ms Jo has been amazing with our 5 year old son. When we pick up Jayden he is so happy and loves to tell us everything he has learnt with Ms Jo. Such a great centre and Ms Jo is so amazing at teaching the children independence. Cannot recommend high enough.
We moved to Australia around 2.5 years back and as any mum I was apprehensive about my daughter settling in, picking up English (as it is not our first language), communicating and exploring to ultimately become confident and independent. I live nearby the centre. One day, I suddenly dropped in to check out and instantly fell in love with the vibrant, open and welcoming space. As always Jo was so adorable and comforting. My daughter has not only learned her lessons but also has become so confident and active. All thanks to Jo and her continuous efforts to make this centre better everyday even in these tricky times. I highly recommend the centre and its services.
Our daughter has been at ABC to VCE for about 6 months. Since the end of the first lot of Victorian home schooling. We started with one session with Miss Jo and Our daughter really loved her and her way of teaching. We saw her confidence soar and her work improve. Even her class teacher commented. So when covid school 2.0 was upon us we decided to out her in for a second class. So we now see Miss Shannon as well. We also find her great. Having the 2 different tutors each week I find is great as there are 2 different approaches and our girl never gets bored. Highly recommend Jo and her team and will be putting our youngest daughter into the Begin Brilliantly Program to prepare her for when she starts prep in 2022.
Ms. Nicole is one of the best teachers I’ve had in my life. By doing 1 to 3 tutoring, I’m able to ask questions that I didn’t understand in class. Learning extra knowledge about VCE and helping on my school’s homework and assignments has been of great help. My English has improved dramatically since I came to Australia, and one of the reasons is definitely this tutoring centre. Before I came here, I was averaging a ‘D’ which is around 50%. However, Nicole has helped me on my language structure, vocabulary and all the other literary skills that is need for the VCE program. That’s why I am now averaging a ‘B’ in my school work now and sometimes I have received an A which is 85%. I know my English isn’t that good yet, but I can still improve through this tutoring centre.
Helping your child to succeed!
A premium specialist session is 60 minutes of intense learning. Each session is specific to your child’s needs, to ensure any gaps in their knowledge are filled, and their learning accelerated. These premium specialist sessions are with experts in their field and highly sought after. Premium specialist sessions are limited to teacher and one student only. One to one means we are able to accelerate a student’s learning to achieve their best, efficiently. An excellent option for students completing VCE or those who may require significant support to achieve classroom level.
Students who are struggling with the stresses of the final years of high school often need more support. Our VCE content is based on the Australian curriculum and ensure it’s aligned to what your child is learning at school. This helps build confidence, reinforces what they’re already learning and helps them prepare for exams.
In these mini specialist sessions, we nurture 2-4 students at a time, ensuring students have ample time to ask questions, discuss learning and share their knowledge for consolidation.
Our tutors are specially trained to facilitate online learning and assessment. At the click of a button, students can be sitting in a virtual lesson space in front of a professional tutor, using our state-of-the-art interactive learning platform.
Our tutoring sessions are individualised according to the learning needs and academic goals of the student with a special focus on exam preparation to support a strong ATAR.
