Studies show that children who participate in quality kindergarten programs have an opportunity to build relationships, develop skills, and learn each and every day. Quality kindergarten programs assist in preparing children to transition more easily to school and perform more successfully.
Our Queensland Government-approved Kindergarten Program is based on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). We deliver an emergent curriculum that incorporates the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines and supports the premise of play-based learning.
The Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines
The guidelines describe a set of five learning and development areas that relate to the five broad learning outcomes identified in the EYLF:
- Children have a strong sense of identity
- Children are connected with and contribute to their world
- Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
- Children are confident and involved learners
- Children are effective communicators
Our Kindergarten Program promotes learning through play, and through spontaneous and planned learning experiences and interactions. Children are provided with learning experiences that are inclusive, inviting, hands on, open ended and meaningful through play-based learning. They are encouraged to explore ideas, make connections, solve problems, and engage with others in a social setting
Our Kindergarten Program is tailored to individual children’s development and embraces our connections with families and our local community as the foundation for our curriculum design.
