First Steps to Prep

Is your child ready for school?

We are excited to take bookings from parents for children who are entering prep next year.

This group provides an opportunity to practice and develop independence of skills required for positive classroom interactions.

What these groups target:
This program will focus on:

  • Social Communication (body language, conversational skills and assertiveness)
  • Making friends
  • Fine motor skills
  • Following instructions and routines

Funding:
Private clients are welcome. NDIS – Self and Plan Managed clients are able to participate in this program using their NDIS funding.

A deposit of $50 is taken with your booking, which is refunded if the group does not take place. Payment for the group is made on the first day of the group, and can be made by cash or EFTPOS.

To measure the changes produced by the group, we will provide parents with a short series of questions about what they observe in their child both before and after the group sessions.

If your child isn't a client of Village Therapy, we will also need to conduct a 60 minute session with your child so we can meet the family and get to know the child's strengths and difficulties. This helps us plan the individual program within the group setting.

The cost of this 60 minute individual session is heavily discounted to $100.

Parents drop off and pick up children – please bring a snack.
