B4 Big School
The school readiness program is currently running on Wednesdays- Thursdays and Fridays from 9:15 to 11:15am for children aged between 3.5 and 6years. 

At B4 Big School- (Classes are managed by Ms Nadia Shmeissem- The Early Childhood Specialist Teacher- also teaching at the Primary Schools and at a Tertiary level- Education) The School Readiness Sessions include; Early Literacy and Numeracy interactive based activities. Embedded within our school readiness program is the Creative Arts, where several activities take place to support the social/emotional and creativity of the individual child. During the School Readiness sessions we use various resources to train and assist through the scaffolding process to ensure a smooth transition to kindergarten. Our tutoring classes run very similar to the kindergarten classroom environment as they consist of small group settings with 1-2 teachers and several other educators on site depending on the number of children/students attending.

The Primary School Tutoring classes are held on Monday’s from 5:00pm to 6:30pm and Saturday mornings. We specialise in the early years- Kindy to Year 4 ages between 4.5 to 10.5years- we focus on several Strands of Mathematics and Reading, writing and spelling.

Please contact us for an orientation visit and get the whole picture about what our program has to offer your child- to ensure your child is well prepared for kindergarten. As you may know, children not only require support in the preparation for Kindy- academically but we need to also support their overall well being, by allowing them to feel a sense of comfort - to stay strong and know they can do anything if they try! Again....as we all know children need a little more than academic achievements to survive the big world. Here at B4 Big School, we offer this!! 
Please don't hesitate to checkout our Google reviews to gain feedback from other parents who have already tried our services. 

Please visit www.b4bigschool.com.au for further information about B4 Big School - The School Readiness Specialists or contact Nadia on 0401 683 026.

PARENT INFORMATION

Introducing Body Safety & Protective Behaviours – Top Tips for Parents

With around 1 in 5 children being sexually abused before their 18th birthday, it is extremely important that every parent/carer sits down with their child to discuss protective behaviours with their young children. However, most parents feel ill-equipped to do so and are still in the dark about the reality of childhood sexual abuse. Michelle Derrig, child protection advocate and author of protective behaviours picture book ‘Only For Me’ shares her top tips below:

Understand the statistics
Before introducing the topic, it is essential that you understand the reality of childhood sexual abuse. According to the Australian Criminology’s website almost 90% of victims will actually be abused by someone they know and in approximately half of these cases the child will be abused by a family memberThe other key point to understand, is that not all childhood sexual abuse is perpetrated by adults, with Bravehearts now quoting that ‘somewhere between 30 to 60% of childhood abuse is perpetrated by another child or young person’.  This means that abuse often occurs outside the typical environment you imagine –it could be while children are playing with their peers, on a playdate, at a park, or even whilst at school or their childcare centre.

Provide specific information
To shift the power away from perpetrators, it is important that you don’t just speak in general terms. Instead provide children with specific examples of inappropriate behaviours. For instance:

  • Teach children that it is wrong for anyone to take a photograph of their private parts or show them any images of private parts on any sort of device.
  • Teach children that it doesn’t matter if someone tells them that it’s a game, rewards them, or gives them treats or gifts – it is still not ok.
  • Highlight that these rules apply no matter the person’s age, gender, status in the community, or their relationship to the child i.e. friend, family or stranger.
  • Empower them with the knowledge that they can say ‘no’ at any point that someone’s touch doesn’t feel right - including kissing, stroking, cuddling, snuggling or tickling.
  • Help children to understand the physical cues which may indicate that they’re feeling uncomfortable. i.e. sweaty palms, butterflies in their tummy, feeling sick.
  • Identify that abusive behaviour is never a secret, even if someone threatens them, or if they think they are to blame;
  • Remind children that no matter what, abusive behaviour is never their fault and that they won’t be in trouble.

Practice responding to unsafe situations
Initially, get the children to practice saying ‘no’ in a loud voice; for those aged 3+, also get them to practice a sentence like ‘don’t do that – I don’t like it’. If dealing with older school aged children, you should also provide them with an alternate method to extricate themselves from a situation e.g. saying that they need to go to the toilet, or they think they can hear mum calling.

Develop their network of trust
Help children identify five trusted adults that they could go to, if they were ever worried, or if someone did the wrong thing. Reinforce that nothing is ever so awful that they can’t tell someone about it; and that if they did tell someone and the adult didn’t help them, then they must keep on telling until someone does.
