Welcome to our Pre-Kindy program
Our pre-kindy program runs Monday – Friday between the hours of 8.30am – 3.30pm including lunch for the full year including school holidays.
Each session caters for a maximum of 15 children and is run by both an Early Childhood Teacher and . either a Qualified Educator or Certificate 3 Educator.
We have a high demand of our Pre-Kindy program, and most children attend one day per week with the option of a second day subject to availability. (The Possums Room is available if a second day is not available for your child)
From 2022 the Pre-kindy will run for the full year including school holidays, children currently enrolled in the Possums room will be offered 2 days a week, any other spaces will then be allocated to anyone on the waiting list.
The kindy classes cater for a 3-4 year old age group and structured to help the children prepare for 4 year old kindy the following year. If your child turns 3 after 30th June they will be eligible to start the following February
The educators prepare a program of activities based on the children’s interests, needs and strengths. We provide a safe, warm and stimulating environment which encourages the children to develop and grow at their own rate.
Within the daily routine there is provision for both planned and spontaneous play experiences in all of the developmental areas. The indoor and outdoor environments are set up to allow children to make realistic choices in their play.
The Daily Program is on display in the foyer and we strongly welcome and encourage parental input and comments.
Storypark is a secure online platform where educators can share stories, observations and daily journals with families, parents are also encouraged to share what is happening in their world with us. This gives us an insight into your home life and engages the families in our curriculum.
Bookings for our pre-kindy program can be taken thoroughout the year, it is advisable to book as early as possible as it is a highly regarded and much sought after early education program in the Hills.
If you require additional care, speak to our team about booking your child additional days in the kindy (subject too availability) or in the Possums room. It gives your child the ability to make more friends within the centre and deepen bonds with our incredible staff.
From 2022 the Pre-kindy program will be running full time including the school holidays.
What Our Families are Saying
“I sent all 3 of my children here and was sad when they had to leave to go to school! It was an amazing place with kind and caring staff. I can’t say enough accolades for Little Possums”
“Helen and her team and beautiful! My boy started at 6 months old and he’s thriving! He never wants to come home.
Honestly the best decision to pop your little one in this daycare! Would rate 10 stars is I could”
“So much more than a child care centre! Such a nurturing, caring environment for our kids, a true testament to the hills community”
