First Steps

Early childhood experts work in kindergartens, helping children prepare for first grade both educationally and emotionally. Netanya

Rationale

Many kindergarten children (5-6 years old) about to start school the following year, are not sufficiently prepared. They lack the necessary gross and fine motor skills, pre-reading abilities, number recognition, as well as the skills to cope with emotional-social demands. Their parents may be unable to offer the support and assistance the children need, thus leading to a continually growing gap between these children and their more advantaged peers. We prepare the children for first grade, diminish the school readiness gap, and give them a better chance for academic success.

Objectives

Preparation for first grade both emotionally and educationally

Success factors

80% of the children learned the basic skills for starting school.

Duration

Three hours a week, during the School year.

Target Audience

Children, 5-6 years old

Location

Hefzibah, Netanya.
