The kindergarten assessments available for your child
Assessment is a key component in determining an entry point for any intervention at any stage in a child’s learning.
This is particularly important for kindergarten children so that their program is specifically designed to meet their individual needs.
The assessments are:
1) The Early Learning Profile- these are prerequisite reading skills, phonemic knowledge and processing, segmenting and blending skills, sight word acquisition and oral reading fluency.
2) Preparation for the kindergarten assessment program (Best Start) in all areas of literacy.
Following the assessment your child’s outcomes will be measured on a regular basis through a value-added approach. This means that we specifically determine the skills your child has learned in any given time frame and target the skills that are yet to be learned and improved.
This carefully structured early learning program provides young children with the foundation skills to be competent and confident in their learning at school. It provides the base-line skills in reading, writing, spelling and grammar. These elements are integrated into a combined literacy and numeracy session, including:
- Phonemic knowledge
- Phonological processing
- Sight word acquisition
- Vocabulary builder
- Oral reading fluency
- Reading comprehension at the visual and factual level
- Early writing constructs
- Number Skills
- Constructing and Partitioning Numbers
- Navigation and Spatial Concepts
The course is structured for 4 terms of 10 weeks each. Students attend a two-hour class once a week.
Each term students receive a GEA book that is mapped to the syllabus and written based on Cognitive Load Theory.
In week 9 of each term students are assessed to measure their progress. Full feedback is given to students. Parents receive a comprehensive report of their child’s progress. Week 10 is the consolidation week.
