The Kindergarten years mark an important milestone in a child’s life. Throughout your child’s Kindergarten year, you will see tremendous growth and development. Children will have opportunities to explore, discover, create, imagine, research and interact with peers and Educators in a social context. Through this they will gain
confidence in their own strengths and abilities and see themselves as a competent and capable learner.
A key element in the Kindergarten Program is to work alongside parents and families, to share knowledge and information about the child. Knowledge of a child’s strengths and interest and a families aspirations for their child, will support the Educators as they develop individual programs. These programs will help your child with individual Identity, social connectedness, well being, a desire for active learning and development communication skills.
When children are engaged in a rich Kindergarten program they are building knowledge, skills and dispositions that will prepare them for the next step in their Education. As they move towards their Prep year, feeling confident and secure, socially and emotionally is very important. Therefore this is a key focus in our Kindergarten program. Through developing caring, trusting relationships with Parents and Teachers, children feel safe to communicate and contribute their ideas.
