Meerkats - 3 year old Kindergarten
Our dedicated Meerkats 3 to 4 year’s room is a warm and inviting learning space for children to grow their intellectual brain. The educational program runs on a timetable with specialised educational sessions that run in the morning and afternoon. Children are supported and encouraged to grow strong healthy bodies and a love for learning. Every child will take a unique path to their learning and development. Daily yoga classes will help to teach children breathing techniques to calm their emotions and regulate their behaviour. These are skills children will use throughout their life.

Our educators are bright happy inspiring people. They have been handpicked to work with children aged 3-4 years because of their experience and specialised training in early childhood development.
Our in house chef provides delicious healthy meals that are made from seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, bread, pasta and rice.
The playroom has a familiar and predictable routine that includes planned learning classes, science, maths, language, physical education, art, drama, active play times, meal times, self-help skills, like taking off clothing and putting on clothing, washing their face, brushing their hair and cleaning their teeth along with restful quiet play times.
Children have this need to run and be active within nature. Our beautiful outdoor gardens are a great place for young children to explore and grow their inquiring minds. The sand pit is situated in a quiet area in the yard so that young children can travel to different worlds using their imaginations and their intellect. The purposely built traffic school inspires active children to be strong and healthy. The swing area is nestled into the trees that form the perimeter. The cube climbing equipment is designed to challenge active children.
Children continue to enjoy singing and playing with musical instruments. Their art work begins to have a purpose, long brush strokes are painted across the canvas, and they enjoy experimenting with colours and textures. At this age children begin to draw themselves and their family. They are busy learning and sometimes they find controlling their emotions very hard. The children are taught breathing techniques with our in house daily yoga classes. They are learning to cordinate their large muscles to climb, run, dig in the sand pit, dance, ride a bike and enjoy the freedom of play.
Children will be taken on daily walking outings in the local community to build up their stamina and enjoy a walk to the park, library or local shops. Children are so busy learning how to connect with their inner self and extend their wellbeing.
Extra curricula activities are at an additional cost: Swimming lessons and pit gym are located within walking distance to our kindergarten. These activities are fun learning experiences for children over 3 years of age.
To comply with DET laws, an educational plan will outline the purpose of the planned excursion, route, time, date and the learning outcomes of the planned excursion. With this a risk minimisation plan and written permission from parents will be completed before any child leaves the service.
