Quick Learning

      Stories

I have my preschooler registered for the Get Ready for School program and I want to THANK YOU for bring such a wonderful program to our neighbourhood. My son’s first steps in the world of learning are just amazing. The program is only 7-8 weeks in and he already knows so many amazing things like syllable clapping, big/small, same/different, phonics for 6 letters and much more.

A Beneficial Program for Everyone Involved

      Stories

I would like to share my extreme satisfaction with being involved with the Letters, Sounds and Words program for the past five years. The first time I read about this program through our school board’s email, I knew it was what we needed at our school to help our young struggling students.

The Same or Different

      Stories

Through the Get Ready for School program, my son Nathan has learned to identify letters and sounds, and his vocabulary skills have improved tremendously! He is more independent when it comes to getting dressed and is even willing to ‘clean up’ after every activity at home.

Rhys participated in the Get Ready for School program after his family moved from northern Ontario to Cambridge. Rhys struggled with severe anxiety, but over the course of the program, he gained some independence. He was ready for school! We followed up with his mother, Sherri Roy, to see how Rhys is doing now.

Our Get Ready for School program helps children get comfortable in a learning environment. They practise routines. They make friends. They read stories. Randi St. Laurent shared her daughter’s experience in the program in this original testimonial. We followed up this summer to see how they are doing now.

Video: A Tale of Two Sisters

      Stories, Videos

This is the tale of two sisters preparing for school in the Get Ready for School program. Chloe thrived in the program and was always excited to go. She made friends and connections with the teachers. Our other daughter, Georgia, is now in the Get Ready for SchoolTM program at Centerville Chicopee in Kitchener. She is also thriving. Georgia is clapping syllables, saying sounds, and reading books.
