Welcome to our Pre-Kindy program
Our pre-kindy program runs Monday – Friday between the hours of 8.30am – 3.30pm including lunch during school term time.
Doors open at 8.30am with the class commencing at 9.00am.
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 always available if a second day is not available for your child)
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.
At the end of each day, a brief daily report will be emailed home. The daily report describes the activities and tasks the children take part in to further their understanding and learning in areas of interest. We also include a range of spontaneous events and activities the children to contribute to.
Bookings for our pre-kindy program run during school term time.
This is a highly regarded and much sought after early education program.
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.
