Three-year-old Kindergarten provides an opportunity for children to develop play skills, socialise, express their feelings, and discover the rich joys of learning away from home.
The children are supported in their play by Educators and enjoy teacher directed small group games, songs, stories, crafts and music.
Children must be three years old before 30 April in the year of enrolment and must be fully toilet trained to attend.
Our four-year-old Kindergarten program provides children with greater opportunities to work collaboratively in small groups and develop social and play skills that lead to independent problem solving.
A greater emphasis on developingself-help, initiative, creativity, and self-regulation is placed on children as they prepare for school entry. The program introduces an Early Years focused literacy program, which strengthens children’s letter recognition, phonic knowledge, fine motor pencil grip and letter writing skills.
Children enjoy rich literacy and Arts experiences such as drama, storytelling, singing, music, painting, creating, and constructing as part of the four-year-old program. Children also enjoy exploring Science and Mathematics through hands on activities, projects and games.
Developing a sense of curiosity and inquiry is encouraged, alongside learning skills such as counting, measuring, estimating, classifying and sorting. Children are always supported at their level of understanding and extended to experience challenge and develop new ideas.
Transition to school commences in Term 3 for four-year-old Kindergarten children, with a range of classroom and school-based activities with our Junior School teachers and students. These activities are designed to support children’s smooth transition to school through fun and engaging experiences.
Gym, Library and Music classroom sessions as well as tours of the College, Assembly participation and even kite flying on the oval all help our Kindergarten children to become familiar with the College environment and people as they transition to Prep at King’s College.
