We provide an integrated 3 and 4 year old kindergarten program.
We have a newly renovated indoor space that includes a large children’s room and a meeting room. The Kinder has a generous outdoor deck surrounded by clear weatherproof blinds, so we are able to provide a continuous indoor/outdoor learning program. The outdoor area includes a large sandpit, a music wall and sensory path, extensive climbing equipment, a sensory kitchen, tunnel, boat, cubby, bike path, and a vegetable garden with a compost bin and worm farm. Our aim is to create an environment where children feel they belong, develop a strong sense of identity and problem solve through inquiry, involvement and investigation. Our kinder provides a foundation for life-long learning.
We believe that children learn through play. “Play can expand children’s thinking and enhance their desire to learn.” (EYLF)
Positive learning in the early years lays the foundation for life long learning and sets children on a confident path for school, work and life. Our educational program combines both child initiated play and intentional teaching.
