Play for learning…

Our Pre-Kindy Program is an educational play-based program. It will provide your child with meaningful experiences that promote the development of spiritual, social, emotional, intellectual, creative and physical skills in partnership with families.

Our staff create a caring, safe and stimulating environment that nurtures your child's disposition to wonder, explore and construct meaning about the world.

The Early Years Learning Framework guides the experiences of the children in this program. It has "a specific emphasis on play-based learning and recognises the importance of communication and language and social and emotional development." (The Early Years Learning Framework-Belonging, Being and Becoming p.5).

To join our program, your daughter or son will need to be three years of age. If your child has not turned three at the commencement of the school year, they may be enrolled and we will hold their place until after their third birthday.

Our Pre-Kindy programme was assessed in May 2017 and rated by the Education and Care Regulatory Unit against the National Quality Standards for Early Childhood Education (NQS). We were rated as exceeding the National Quality Standards in all seven areas of the NQS and have therefore received an overall rating of exceeding the National Quality Standards.

Current Pre-Kindy days are Mondays and Wednesdays.
