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.
Our weekly incursions teaching the children various team sports encourages physical, emotional and mental development all while learning a new skill and having fun with friends! By instilling healthy habits and keeping children busy and active, the team practices and games can help teach children leadership and communication skills and gain confidence.
Our fortnightly dance classes use a combination of music and movement to increase your child's flexibility, range of motion, physical strength and stamina. The repetitive movements involved in dance can improve muscle tone, correct poor posture, increase balance and coordination. The combination of listening, dancing, singing and moving in these classes encourages learning with a playful approach.
Bush Kindy is largely emergent, child directed and play based, allowing our little lifelong learners the time and space to develop their interests, skills and understanding through practical, hands on experiences. Through spending time in nature, the children learn and grow, all in a less formal setting than a classroom. In Bush Kindy children will have the freedom to explore, play, build, create, imagine, learn and use their senses to experience the outdoor environment and engage with one another when and how they choose.
When the time comes, your child will be ready to spread their wings and fly.
