2.5 years - 3.5 years
Our pre-kindy room caters for children aged between 2 ½ yrs – 3 ½ years.
We have two staff (an Educator and Educator Assistant) with a maximum group size of 16 children at any one time.
One of the main aims of the Pre-Kindy room is to develop children’s self help skills along with emotional and cognitive skills.
The pre-Kindy room provides a child based program and curriculum based on the Early Years Learning Framework.
Interests of the children are observed by staff and then facilitated through hands on experiences, group activities and language times.
In this age group, a major focus is on toileting and learning to work and share as part of a group.
