Kindy Room

Our Kindy Room provides care for children aged 3 to school age. Our ratio is 1 educator to 10 children. The room has full access to an undercover veranda and the main outside play space which has been recently renovated. There are full bathroom facilities for children, and those who are still toilet training are supported and considered in our centre. Our youngest aged kindy children (3 year olds) are offered an opportunity to explore, experiment, problem solve, enquire, hypothesise, research and investigate in a safe and supportive environment. By allowing the children to learn and develop these skills we have found that by the time they start Kindergarten they are more resilient and confident learners. We provide care for when children do not attend Kindergarten. School readiness is incorporated into the program daily. This does not mean we teach your child to read or write but instead assist your child in learning foundational skills that will support further development in a classroom in school.  Each child has a portfolio containing photos, videos and observations/learning stories about your child and the way they have developed.

In all our programs and underpinning our education and care we reflect against the Early Years Learning Framework. Our educators have knowledge and training in areas such as Montessori, Marte Meo, Circle of Security, Reggio Emilio and Nature Pedagogy. We fully believe by having knowledge of many theories around learning and development we enrich your child’s day and support their brain development to be confident, resilient, considerate, respectful and empathetic citizens in our community.
