Our exceptional kindergarten and preschool program provides every opportunity to prepare your child for a positive start to their schooling years. Here, our educators strike a balance between child-initiated and teacher-led activities.
While still focusing on attentive care and play-based learning, our educators will foster your child’s natural desire to engage with educational programs for life. We deliver a School Readiness program that specialises in allowing your child to slowly adapt to the new school environment socially, emotionally and mentally before they even arrive. This program teaches the children a variety of literacy and numeracy skills, including how to write their names, identification of simple numbers and shapes, recognition skills, such as identifying their school bags, and a range of communications skills, tools and tactics.
As a small community, we communicate directly with each child’s future teacher. And, we work alongside parents with care. We have a connection with Canungra Primary School, grounding our school readiness program in our community. By nurturing these connections in our community, we can bridge the gap between early learning and primary school, making the process a relaxed and pleasant one.
A highlight of our year is our kindergarten graduation. In this special ceremony, families and educators gather to send off the children who are moving on to primary school. Children wear caps and gowns. It’s a very special celebration for our whole community, and we wish each child the very best for their primary school years.
When the time comes, your child will be ready to spread their wings and fly.
