Coming soon - School Ready with Teddy Online school readiness programme.
Our Spring Term programme will be launching soon, giving you and your child everything you need to prepare for starting school at home. Join our free Facebook group ‘School Starters Hub’ to get tips and support and to be the first to know about the programme launch.
If you have a child starting school in the next few years then you’ve come to the right place.
Whether you’re feeling anxious and overwhelmed, nervous for them and/or you, unsure about what you need to do to choose, apply and prepare for school, we can help. We know that it can be partly exciting, partly terrifying and just the thought can have you reaching for the tissues because ‘how on earth has your little baby grown so fast?’
With over 20 years of experience in Primary Education as Early Years teachers and school Leaders we have supported hundreds of children and families to successfully and happily start school and love their first years. We are also both Mums (Em’s little girl started school in 2020) and so we understand the feelings of worry and the huge amount of trust you put into schools and childcare settings when you leave your child there.
There’s lots we have to offer so do read on and we can’t wait to start helping you to feel confident and excited about the next steps in your child’s education journey.

If you have a child born between 1st September 2016 - 31st August 2017 then you (hopefully) have applied for their Primary School place or are planning to do it in the next 7 days, applications close on 15th January. In just 7 short months your precious little baby...
What about reading and writing?
One of our most asked questions is ‘should my child be able to read and/or write before they start school?’ Knowing the skills children need and learning them in fun ways before school starts is exactly what we support children and families with through our School Ready with Teddy School Readiness Programme.
In addition to the School Ready with Teddy programme we offer extra support for early reading and writing skills (known as Phonics at school) here:
‘All About Sounds’ Phonics kit – everything you need to develop the foundations of reading and writing at home.
‘All About Sounds’ Online Phonics Workshop for grown ups – this easy to use, work at your own pace workshop will take you from feeling confused about phonics to being confident with all of the skills your child needs before school and lots of fun ideas for teaching at home.
