Kindergarten – a great place for little people!
The word Kindergarten can be loosely translated as meaning “a garden for children” – a place where children learn through play.
During their time at Kindergarten, children discover and develop a wide variety of skills and experiences. Our trained teachers and co-workers provide a stimulating and nurturing environment that encourages and fosters children’s individual development.
They support children to become more aware of the world or which they are a part. Time at kindergarten strengthens a child’s confidence and personal skills and provides an opportunity for all children to develop a strong sense of self.
National Regulations and a National Law Act underpin all our practices. The National Quality Framework, in conjunction with the Victorian Early Years Framework forms the basis for our programs. These tools help children
- develop a strong sense of identity
- make them feel connected with and contribute to their world
- develop a strong sense of wellbeing
- become confident and involved learners
- become effective communicators.
The early years are critical in laying the foundation for children’s achievement in schooling and into adulthood.
There is now a wide body of evidence showing that children’s education and care affects a child’s health, wellbeing and competence throughout their lives.
Quality learning experiences provide the basis from which literacy, numeracy, learning behaviour and future opportunities can be developed.
