Linden Little Learners Primary Prep Program

Transitioning from Kindergarten to Primary School presents many challenges, especially for children with unique learning needs. The change in environment and increased academic demands can be stressful and confusing. It's a crucial time when the right support and understanding are essential to foster confidence and readiness in every child for their educational journey.

Linden Little Learners Primary Prep Program

Our new Linden Little Learners Primary Prep program helps young children aged 4 to 7 years, by laying a solid foundation for their primary school years. This comprehensive program focuses on enriching early literacy skills, fostering number sense, and enhancing social communication within a small group setting. Emphasizing learning through play, the program is crafted to empower children with diverse learning profiles, equipping and empowering them with the essential skills required for a successful academic experience.


Two Highly Qualified Facilitators 

The program is led by two highly qualified Linden specialists: Abigail Harrington, a Speech and Language Therapist, and Winnie Layes, an Educational Therapist. Drawing from their extensive experience working with early and primary-age children with varying learning needs in international school settings, both specialists bring invaluable expertise to the program.
