Tuition programmes to help your little one get ready for school

 If your 3-4-year old is starting school soon, then our exciting and fun 10-week programme is for them. Our Get Ready For School programme runs for 10-weeks throughout the year. They can even take a 5-day  course during the summer.

Here’s how it works:

  • Your little one will be placed in either GRFS 1 or 2, depending on his/her ability. You’ll find this out from the results of your free initial assessment.
  • The areas we focus on are phonics (letter sounds), graphemes (letter recognition and formation), early maths concepts and number work, fine motor skills, early reading and spelling, name writing, listening and following instructions, and much more.
  • During the summer this will run as a 5 day crash course! Your little one will come in over 5 consecutive days during one week in the summer holidays. You can choose from the week commencing the 2nd of August or the week commencing the 9th of August.
  • The session is 1 hour and 15 minutes and will consist of some group work (no more than 3 in a group) and some tailor-made individual work.
  • Costs are £250 for the 10 weeks and can be paid with childcare vouchers.
  • Or if you would like to book the summer 5 day crash course it will cost £125 for the week.
  • The GRFS course is non-refundable 7 days before the start date of the course.

The course has some great benefits including:

I would like to say thank you to Bridgette & team. Brigette has been so kind, friendly, patient & encouraging. My daughter Darcey (age 3) has just completed the 10-week 'Get Ready for School' programme. Her confidence to start to hold a pen, recognise numbers and sound out phonic sounds is amazing. Would highly recommend to anyone Kip McGrath Shenfield. Looking forward to her starting the follow-up course.
