School Readiness Programs in Altona
Is your child starting primary school soon? Here at ABC to VCE, we’ve created a program to transition students into school by engaging them in the types of lessons they’re likely to experience. Our team of qualified teachers have all the tools necessary to increase learning abilities and create excitement for school. We’re proud to say that our past students are more prepared for the lessons they encounter in school, are able to take more risks, and have better academic and social skills than those who have not completed a school readiness program in Altona.
Success in school starts early
When it comes to prepping for school readiness, altona parents turn to us to properly prepare their children for learning. Learning doesn’t have to start once they reach primary school. By introducing them to lessons early, you can remove the stress of a new environment and help them succeed. Our program focuses on the important topics of spelling, reading and counting, as well as improving concentration for lessons. We’ve seen how this builds comfort and confidence in learning that will directly transfer to in-class studies.

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.

ABC to VCE tutoring centre - tutors for results
What is a school readiness program?
A school readiness program is designed to immerse your child in activities that they will be exposed to in a primary school setting.
Activities include phonics (sounds and how to produce them correctly), handwriting (correct pencil grip), reading skills, spelling and number work.
The program will also develop social and emotional skills, concentration and co-operation
What are the benefits of a school readiness program?
We know ourselves, that when we practise a skill set, we get better at it, we feel more comfortable and confident and are prepared to take risks to learn further. Once children practise the skills they need for school, their confidence and excitement in extending their knowledge can occur. Children become more advanced and therefore new learning is easier to consolidate and extend, achieving higher results. Conversely, when we are put in an unfamiliar situation it causes unnecessary stress and hinder learning.
My child attends kinder or a child care centre – Isn’t this enough?
Children are transitioning from play-based education in a kinder or child care setting into a structured, more formal based style of education in primary school. Whilst both learning environments are extremely important, the result between the two styles of education is very different and can cause stress and anxiety, and in particular, a lack of confidence when transitioning into school.
Why is Begin Brilliantly the best program?
This cleverly designed program has been created by a leading educator with many years of experience in both early childhood and the primary school setting. The program is based on research showing a direct correlation between early intervention and ultimately a child’s success in school; not just their first year, but beyond. What better gift can you give your child, than the best head start and achieving their highest results possible?
How often do we attend Begin Brilliantly?
Coming into the centre, most families attend once per week, however others more often; the choice is yours. We recommend once per week is enough and we offer a full resource package with in-home activities for you to do with your children to support and consolidate their learning. Many of our clients choose the online program, as an additional support to coming into the centre.
I live too far away from your centre.
This is not a problem at all! We have created a pause and play online learning system for you to do in the convenience of your own home. You can easily enjoy the program with your child as often as you wish and re-visit your favourite segments.
