Reviewing the development and wellbeing of children, prior to them commencing preschool, kindergarten and/or an early learning environment.
The Kindy Readiness Project
Is your ORIGINS child turning three years old?
The Kindy Readiness Project, an ORIGINS sub-project, will provide an opportunity to review the development and wellbeing of children, prior to them commencing preschool, kindergarten and/or an early learning environment.
ORIGINS families with children that are turning three-years-old are invited to join the study.
What is involved?
Participants will be asked to complete online questionnaires at, or around the time, their child turns three years of age. The online questionnaires, which should take no more than 45 minutes in total to complete, will consist of:
an internationally recognised assessment of child development (Ages & Stages Questionnaire);
an assessment of child behaviour (Conners Early Childhood); and
further questions about you, your child and partner’s current health and medical history.
What else do you need to know?
Through completion of the online questionnaires, participants will have the opportunity to raise any concerns regarding the child’s development, behaviour and/or wellbeing. Families will be provided with a letter outlining the results, and if concerns are identified, they will receive feedback and suggestions on referrals to public clinics or private allied and/or specialists via their GP.
The Kindy Readiness Project is now recruiting participants.
