Head Start Courses

Start the school year right!

Interactive Head Start Courses

We believe in supporting families in ensuring students have every chance of success.

The beginning of the school year is crucial for preparing for academic success. In our decades of working with students, we have observed that the earlier they prepare, the more likely they will reach their goals in school. What students learn at school builds on prior teaching and assumed understanding.

Academic Task Force paves the way for academic success through our Head Start Program. With courses such as NAPLAN Preparation, Learning Skills, Maths, English, and Essay Writing, our Head Start Program offers students the opportunity to gain the advantage they need to excel in the present school year, as well as in succeeding ones.

Through our Head Start program, we will help your child equip themselves with the academic skills needed to develop their confidence, study habits and subject familiarity.

Our specialist teachers know how to engage even the most disinterested students with targeted teaching and class interaction that promotes learning development.

Our popular Learning Skills class will teach your child how to manage their time effectively for completing their work as well as teaching them strategies for improving reading, learning and memory to achieve success.

Our Essay Writing class will teach your child how to write great essays using a simple plan they can adapt to any subject.

If you missed the last Head Start Program in January, Skills Development Programs are conducted each school holiday in April, July and October. Click here for more info.
