What’s unique about Milestones School Readiness Programme?

Our experience tells us that children learn best through play, and we recognise the importance of developing social and emotional well-being as an essential element to becoming an active and positive learner. Milestones provides that strong foundation to help children start their educational journey with excitement and confidence.

Milestones School Readiness Programme helps children to prepare for school not only by focusing on their pre-academic skills but also supporting their overall development, independence, and conviction. The programme is implemented by our specialist team of Registered Behaviour Technicians (RBTs), under the supervision of our Board-Certified Behaviour Analysts (BCBAs), and facilitated by speech therapists, psychologists and occupational therapists.
