We aim to provide an environment where each child feels they are valued and that they belong. Our program aims to develop the whole child with a particular focus on each child’s social/emotional development.
NumeracyChildren have the opportunity to engage in games, songs, activities which encourage skills such as counting, number identification, grouping, patterning, shape and measurement.
LiteracyJolly Phonics (a program which introduces the children to all 26 letters of the alphabet. We learn the sound of each letter, how to identify each letter and begin to use the letters we have learnt.) All About Me (each child has a turn at taking home the show and tell bag and sharing with the friends at kinder).
CookingChildren will have the opportunity to engage in many cooking experiences throughout the year.
