Stuck in the middle with you!! We are definitely not babies any more, but still very much on our journey of discovery and development.
Kindergarten (3 - 4 Years)
- 1 Room
- 20 Children
- 2 Educators
Our Possum room has 20 children each day enjoying a wide variety of experiences provided by our 2 educators. The children enjoy time with books, art, craft, construction, music, science, maths and a variety of fine motor opportunities, extending the children's interest and curiosity across all areas of development.
Early Learning Program
Our routines allow time for individual, small group and large group play/learning sessions. Physical spaces are made available for children to engage in rest and quiet experiences, along with play based activities. Our transitioning procedure to our Emu and Kookaburra learning rooms includes communication with families and involves shorts visits to these rooms to ensure a smooth journey.
The kindergarten children have their own learning and play spaces with age appropriate activities that assist in the commencement of their journey towards pre-school.
What To Bring Each Day
