Our Program for Kindergarten Age Children
Our program for kindergarten children aged 4 and above operates full time throughout the year within our hours of work, so parents do not have to collect their children after the program for the day has finished or worry about Kindergarten Closure during the school holidays.
We offer a government-funded 4-year-old kindergarten approved program taught by our qualified Bachelor of Early Childhood trained Teacher.
It continues to provide opportunities for children to develop their literacy and numeracy skills through play-based experiences. Our kindergarten program encourages children to think critically as they engage in the educational program.

Transition to School
A positive start to a child’s life at school is a collaborative approach between their parents, our early childhood teachers, their future primary teachers, the children themselves and, in some circumstances, health professionals. We work with our local schools ensuring there is open communication with everyone involved to assure the educational and holistic needs for your child are met.
Information is exchanged through both formal and informal channels allowing the schools to gain a greater understanding of your child’s strengths, needs and interests. Our relationships with the local schools have been built on trust and respect , ensuring families are well informed of the processes, requirements, and expectations of the school. Our program for kindergarten provides the bridge for families to build positive relationships with their respective schools.
