Our exceptional kindergarten and preschool program provides every opportunity to prepare your child for a positive start to their schooling years. Here, our educators strike a balance between child-initiated and teacher-led activities.
While still focusing on attentive care and play-based learning, our educators will foster your child’s natural desire to engage with educational programs for life. We deliver a School Readiness program that specialises in allowing your child to slowly adapt to the new school environment socially, emotionally and mentally before they even arrive. This program teaches the children a variety of literacy and numeracy skills, including how to write their names, identification of simple numbers and shapes, recognition skills, such as identifying their school bags, and a range of communications skills, tools and tactics.
Our school readiness program is run by a qualified school teacher, who can share routines and structures from primary school with the children in a fun way. We have connections with the Granville State School to ensure what we are teaching is relevant and transferrable. We take the children to the school and school teachers visit us so that the move doesn’t come as a big shock when the time comes. We also prepare transition statements for the children so that the teachers know all about them before they even reach the classroom.
We believe that all children should be educated in water safety so we are proud to offer swimming lessons to our Kindergarten group. Our swimming lessons take place every Tuesday and Thursday at our town swimming pool. The children learn about awareness when in the water, keeping safe at all times along with an element of fun.
When the time comes, your child will be ready to spread their wings and fly.
