Welcome to the Pre-Kindy Room!
Our Pre-Kindy Room caters for children aged between 2 ½ to 3 ½ years of age. The children are educated and cared for by experienced and qualified educators in a caring and nurturing Christian environment.
The children in Pre-Kindy are offered a program that is underpinned by the Early Years Learning Framework and promotes play based experiences. These support the increased developmental changes that occur in language and cognitive skills at this age. This interest based program enhances children’s learning and provides each child with a real sense of belonging and wellbeing within the Pre-Kindy environment.
We believe that a child’s most influential teacher is their family and/or care giver and as such relish the opportunity to build positive and nurturing relationships with each child’s family to ensure that every child’s needs and interests are being met on a daily basis.
Our indoor environment is structured to meet the needs and interests of the children; we offer interest based play spaces for children to explore that include but are not limited to, an art studio, a camp site and a farm yard. These play spaces are regularly changed throughout the year according to the children’s interests and needs. We believe children do most of their learning through their play therefore we aim for these areas to provide opportunities to explore and discover new things while they play. Our Pre-Kindy class thoroughly enjoy art, musical experiences, dramatic play, messy play and construction.
Our daily routine includes Bible time where the children have the chance to learn about the Bible and God’s love for each of them. We focus on ensuring that we include Biblical concepts, such as loving your neighbour, being truthful and being kind in all that we do. Our routine also involves intentional teaching times, outdoor play, rest time and meal times; we are however very flexible with everything that we do throughout the day and cater for the individual child and their needs as they arise.
The children in Pre-Kindy are encouraged to continue to develop their independence as they build on their self help skill, take more responsibility for their belongings, learn to play co-operatively with others and communicate effectively with peers and educators.
We look forward to sharing our adventures with you and being a part of your child’s learning.
