Our kindergarten programs foster the agency and capabilities of each child by providing a strength based approach to learning and development. We recognise that children have different learning styles, are competent contributors to their own learning, and will be supported to make choices and decisions.
The learning programs and curriculum outcomes are the same in our sessional kindergarten as it is in our integrated long day care kindergarten programs. The difference is the structure of the day and the consistency of the children attending the group each day.
The kindergarten programs are delivered by a qualified early childhood teacher. They’re designed to improve your child’s development in:
