Funded KindergartenKindergartenLogo1

In the Kindergarten room we strongly believe that play is an essential component in building and shaping the children’s development for their future.

Through elements of the VEYLF we strive to offer a quality funded Kindergarten program in which:

  • Fosters a sense of self worth and autonomy.
  • Is stimulating and encourages children to challenge themselves and make choices by using their initiative and problem-solving skills.
  • Encourages children to express themselves creatively using dramatic play, a variety of natural materials, music, dance and different art mediums.
  • Positively challenges and develops the children’s aesthetic development through discussions and exposure to creative experiences of other children as well as from varying cultures.
  • Recognises, reflects and regularly encourages parental input in all spheres of programming.
  • Prepares the children for their transition to school.
