Why Use Ready Set Learn?

“Emma has been an integral part of our children’s education. She is incredibly knowledgeable in early childhood education and employed different strategies to teach my children the skills they’ll need for life. Emma addressed and worked with my son to develop resilience and coping strategies when we were struggling with simple things like sharing. Our youngest child was quite shy, and Emma’s school readiness program gave him the confidence boost needed, that his start to primary school was far more relaxed than we could ever have expected.”

Angela Seaton

“Emma’s perfect combination of compassion and assertiveness make her the kind of teacher that every parent wishes their child will have, and that every child will grow up and remember as their favourite. Her ability to understand the different needs of each and every child she teaches ensures they are school ready and emotionally equipped to tackle the road ahead. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”

Nina Erdstein

I can vouch for these classes!

We just completed the term and it was wonderful and has had a big impact.
Emma’s teaching manner and how she interacts with the children is the best I have seen.

You won’t regret your child doing this class.

Breanna Geyle

We completed this program last year. I can’t recommend this more highly. If you have a child that needs tools to not just manage their emotions but understand them, then this is for you. The classes are full of fun activities & help children build confidence & explicitly teach children how to be a friend and make friends. Worth EVERY cent.

We are currently doing this course and I can’t recommend it enough!

Only half way through and it’s already made a massive difference to our son’s emotional self-regulation and him being able to understand and deal with situations that come his way… 

Emma really is AMAZING!!!

Joanne Manariti

Just wanted to take this opportunity to tell you what a fabulous program you have, even though I know we are just half way through.  I am so glad I found this for Cooper – in fact I think your program should be taught to all pre-schoolers it is that good(seriously every kindergarten should have you teach this). You have tailored it so well for the age group, and your enthusiasm and ability to engage the children is amazing.  Cooper has been
learning and remembering the lessons from the first one and then able to talk about and practise what he has learned in real life with me when things get tough (thanks to me learning as well while listening in on the lessons). It has made a huge difference already, thank you so much.

Alison Zarafa

My son completed the skills class and we so look forward to the resilience course. Emma’s been beyond great with my son who has some extra needs. Thanks so much for your patience and enthusiasm.

Fiona White

My son is doing this term with Emma. He looks forward to it all week. Emma has wonderful energy with the kids. It’s a lovely learning environment and learning process. Very glad we signed up.

Leona Molloy

Your resilience classes had so much impact on my ASD son. He is now able to communicate with everyone how he is feeling, even if he doesn’t have the words. Thank you so much x

About Us

My name is Emma Butler and I am the founder of Ready Set Learn. My passion for early childhood education spans a 25 year career working with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. During the last 20 years however I have been working with 4 and 5 year olds as a kindergarten teacher and pre-school Director.

I graduated from The University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Early Childhood Studies and am registered with the Victorian Institute of Teaching. I also hold certificates in Asthma and Anaphylaxis Management, First Aid, and CPR.

I believe the early childhood years are a magical time of creativity, imagination, and wonderment. They are also a time of great importance as research tells us these years mark the most rapid learning, making them the most significant in a person’s life. As such, we need to provide quality educational opportunities, as the lessons learnt now will last a lifetime.

Through Ready Set Learn I have had the privilege of working with many children and their families to assist them in becoming resilient, confident and developmentally ready for what’s ahead. I look forward to working with your child so we can partner in helping them to reach their fullest potential.
