Welcome to the Pre-Kindy Room!
Our Pre-Kindy Room is 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 experiences based on the interests of the children that 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 meet 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 jungle adventure and a creation space. These play spaces are 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. The children continue to develop fine motor skills and develop their pre-writing skills through drawing, painting, art and craft.
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 and we focus on ensuring that we include Biblical concepts, such as loving your neighbour, being truthful, being kind etc in all that we do.
The children really enjoy time in our outdoor environment; we are proud to boast a large grassy playground with a huge sandpit, swings, gazebo and a mud kitchen which the children love to “cook” in. We have a large shady veranda which enables children to play outside regardless of the weather and at any time during the day.
Pre-Kindy children are encouraged to continue to develop their independence as they build on their self help skills, take more responsibility for their belongings, learn to play co-operatively with others and communicate effectively with peers and educators.
