My cups are full and I’m ready for School with Angie Day
September 22, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Age range taught: 3.5yrs school age
This session is for anyone who wants to better understand the complex and often confusing concept of School Readiness. The session will provide information and practical strategies to better understand each child, and forward plan practical School Readiness experiences to enhance children’s readiness for the transition to school. If you’ve ever struggled to articulate the learning that occurs through a play based curriculum to a parent who questions how you are achieving school readiness without the use of phonics, structured counting worksheets and formal “school readiness sessions”, this is for you. This session will leave educators with a kit of practical ideas and tools for enhancing their school readiness practices as well as ways to best articulate the learning, life skills and benefits to families.

Angie Day has enjoyed a vast array of roles in the education sector for just over a decade. These roles include working as a nominated supervisor, primary teacher, national facilitator, practice coach and NESA supervisor. When reflecting on her early teaching experiences, Angie often references the fact that she was always ‘an early childhood educator trapped in the body of a primary teacher’ placing the rights of children at the forefront of her practice. Her pedagogy prioritises dispositions and a love of learning and fun as the foundation from which to teach.
