Heading off to school is a big step. It’s important to make sure your child has the right skills to succeed.
While it was once thought that a child’s age along with early literacy and numeracy skills were the most important factors in determining school readiness, we now know that social, emotional and behavioural factors are far more important.
As parents, it’s so important that we ensure our kids have these necessary skills so that they get off to a good start at school. We all want our children to succeed at school; to make friends and to be ready to learn.
So what exactly are these skills? And importantly, how can we make sure that our children develop these in time for school?
In this helpful Advice Pack, you’ll learn:
- The key factors to look for when deciding if your child is ready to start school
- Ways to help address any gaps in time

Definitely, the best parent education I’ve ever completed and better than any of the parenting books I’d read! The practical tips, the price, the online format – all perfect. I can’t thank you enough.
With advice based on research, yet delivered with kindness, dedication and genuine warmth, I have learned so much from you. Thank you.
I went to see Kaylene present her ‘Managing Young Children’s Emotions and Meltdowns’ seminar recently. Not only is she an excellent speaker where you are hooked on every word, you can easily relate to her insight and wisdom. A must see presentation for anyone with young kids, you’ll be thanking her and her techniques every day and wishing you knew her secrets sooner.
Kaylene’s presentations are warm, engaging, funny and informative. She is such a fabulous public speaker!
Your talk was brilliant!! I got loads of tools out of it to help with our sensitive soul. Thank you so much.
Dr Kaylene Henderson is so inspirational and such a big help when it comes to kids. She is clearly so very very kind, caring and is easy to listen to.
Kaylene has a wealth of knowledge – her presentations are targeted to the specific needs of each group and she engages very effectively with practical and relevant advice.
I just want to thank you for an awesome presentation! You speak amazingly well with just the right mixture of humour, real-life examples, and information. I don’t know how you do it! I will definitely be trying some new ways with my son from now on and with some of the children I work with too. Thank you so much!
