The transition to school can be a complex journey, with many new experiences and challenges to face. Ascent has designed the School Ready Program to prepare students for their first step into a school shoe. This 30-minute lesson covers important foot health information in a fun and practical way for early childhood classes.

Delivered in kindergarten and child care centres, this fun incursion prepares students for life in the school yard, an environment where correct footwear is an essential part of every day. Our School Ready Program addresses three key learning outcomes appropriate for shoes, making the transition to school that little bit easier.

The lesson also includes a FREE hopscotch mat to leave in the classroom for students to continue to learn about their feet and lower limbs.
