Joey's 4 year old Kindergarten Room - 4 - 5 year olds

Our 4 year old kindergarten program is run by a bachelor trained kindergarten teacher who specialises in early childhood education and training.

Our kindergarten teacher educates and supports children with our STEAM educational program, as well as prepare for school with our school readiness program.

We hold mid year parent teachers interviews where we discuss your child’s progress and discuss how they are going against their key milestones and readiness to head off to school. Every child will take a unique path to their learning and development.  

Children are supported / able to have conversations with adults, educators and peers. The basic human need for friendship is very strong. Friendships are formed with sharing and turn taking while sharing play themes.

Children have an understanding about what’s fair and they can stand up when something is unfair and demand that action is taken to resolve the conflict, so once again their world is on an even playing field. They see their world as having many opportunities to grow their inquisitive brains. They start to explore print in their lives. They learn to read and write their names. They use early literacy and numeracy in play episodes. Children have a sound understanding and experience in playing board games, counting games, memory games with peers and educators.

Children continue to enjoy singing and playing with musical instruments. Their artwork begins to have a purpose, long brush strokes are painted across the canvas, and they enjoy experimenting with colours, form and textures. We start to see detailed drawings and paintings of people, friends and early writing is experimented with.

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 to grow strong healthy minds and capable bodies.

Children participate in weekly swimming and gymnastics classes, these are added curricular learning experiences paid by the parents, these are optional learning experiences, where a small group of children will be accompanied by 2 educators. The children look forward to these weekly excursions with their friends.
