KINDY ROOM - 4 to 5 years

When a child joins our Kindy room our staff aim to promote their individual independence and self-help skills.

 

Our room is designed so that children are presented with choices within a stimulating environment. The Educators interact and observe the children in their chosen experience or routine activity. These observations are used by staff to program experiences into each child’s daily routine.

The program is led by our two qualified primary teachers.

Programmed experiences focus on the children’s needs and interests and while they are preparing for kindy or school these experiences, in line with the Early Years Learning Framework, aim to build different learning and social skills.

During this time the children are using all of their social skills and thinking skills while extending their self help skills.
They are further developing their fine motor skills through activities such as cutting and drawing.

They will learn their colours, shapes, numbers and letters through a range of focused activities and worksheets in their portfolios.

The children also work on developing gross motor skills by enjoying a range of outdoor activities.

Throughout the day the children enjoy a number of group time sessions where they enjoy learning new songs and rhymes, reading stories and sharing their special memories of their weekends, holidays and kindy/school visits.

All of the children enjoy a rest period where they may sleep or quietly enjoy relaxing music and looking at stories.
