DESIGNED BY REAL KINDERGARTEN TEACHERS

 

We sat down with a team of experienced kindergarten teachers and asked the question; “What do you wish your students knew before they arrived in your classroom?”. This course is the result.

 

The Alchemy school readiness program has been developed by classroom teachers to give pre-K students the foundational skills and abilities they will use in their first year of primary school.

Targeting the specific skills that a kindergarten student will use in the first year of school, our 6 week school readiness program isn’t just repetition of letters and numbers; it will be the most fun your child has ever had in a learning environment.

With games, activities and rewarding challenges, students will enter kindergarten with confidence and excitement, fully prepared for the new adventure ahead of them.

We provide one-on-one in-home tuition that works around your busy schedule – coming at a time that is best for you and your child.

Book your first session and see why the Alchemy school readiness program is the #1 choice of parents around the country.

OUR SCHOOL READINESS TUTORS ARE THE VERY BEST AT WHAT THEY DO


Our tutors are chosen not just for academic excellence but for being role models and mentors that have the ability to inspire the young people they work with.

Every tutor is hand selected, interviewed one-on-one and double reference checked before joining our team.

Our pre-K tutors are specifically chosen for their ability to work with younger students; demonstrating the passion, knowledge and patience you would expect from a tutor working with someone so young. They then go through our specific pre-K training program to ensure they are fully equipped to work with your child.

We channel more than a decade of experience into training our tutors, giving them all the support and resources they need to bring out the gold in every student they work with.

All Alchemy tutors hold Working with children checks that we manually verify ahead of their first session. Meet some of them here.

DETAILED FEEDBACK SENT TO YOU AFTER EVERY SESSION

 

We know how important it is that you have insight in to your child’s progress; which is why we email you feedback after every session letting you know what was covered and how your child responded to the content.

Whilst our pre-K program is designed to span 6 weeks, should you choose to continue beyond this you will receive a comprehensive progress report every 10 weeks highlighting the development your child has made under your tutor’s support and identify goals to focus on moving ahead.

At Alchemy, communication is everything – and we do all that we can to keep you in the loop at all times. Busy parents love our weekly feedback as it allows them to track and monitor their child’s progress at a glance – you won’t find this anywhere else.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

We generally suggest you commence our program within 6 months of your child starting Kindergarten. Many of our families choose to work with a tutor over the 6 week December holidays so that the school readiness program rolls in to the start of Kindergarten.
We have a structured 6-week program that has been designed by kindergarten teachers to give young students a head start on the primary school experience. This program can be completed in 6 x 1-hour lessons, ideally over 6 weeks. Should you choose to continue beyond the 6 weeks you are very welcome to do so, and your tutor will prepare content ahead of each lesson that targets the unique needs of your child.
No – there are no contracts and we are entirely pay as you go. We use an automated payment system that simply charges your debit or credit card 24 hours after each lesson occurs. Our school readiness program is designed to go for 6 x 1 hour lessons with the option to continue if you wish – we do encourage you to commit to the 6 weeks to see the full benefits of the program.
To design the school readiness program, we sat down with a team of experienced kindergarten and year 1 teachers and asked ‘what do you wish your students knew before they started school’. Our program is a result of this. It provides an introduction to the learning experience for all pre-K students – regardless of current skill level. It is practical; from encouraging listening and holding a pencil correctly, through to theoretical – using imagination to tell stories and recognise colours, shapes and letters. It includes games and plenty of engagement so your child will love the lessons.
Yes – your tutor will be using the Alchemy School Readiness program which will involve worksheets and guides. To reduce wastage we do encourage our tutors to use digital worksheets where possible – if you would prefer to print these out for your child your tutor would be happy to send them to you ahead of each lesson for you to print at home.
No – but it is covered by our first session 100% happiness guarantee. This means that if you are not 100% convinced the tutor we have lined up for you is the right tutor for your child, the session is on us and we can organise someone else that better suits your needs. If however you are happy to continue (and we are confident that you will be!) then we charge you for the first session when you submit payment details.
