Developing natural curiosity

Our preschool rooms provide universal access approved Kindergarten for 3- 5+ year olds during school terms integrated with year long childcare services.  The program is interactive and engaging whilst developing children's natural curiosity and skills. Our primary aim in this room is to have each child flourish to be the person God intended them to be.

Children can be members of our preschool community by being enrolled in Kindy (KD), long day care (FD- Full Day) or a mixture of the two (KD & FD). During the school holidays we provide a more relaxed day. 

To enhance a child's learning and belonging, children enrolled for their 15 hours (2 days) government funded Kindy must attend on two consecutive days. This enables them to build strong connections with other children, consistently work on projects and develop good educational practices to support them in their school transition. 

The structure and implementation of our curriculum is underpinned by Belonging, Being and Becoming, the National Early Learning Framework for children from birth to five years. Each year children are involved in a number of incursions and excursions and we pride ourselves on offering a diverse and rich curriculum. 

"Once children see themselves as authors and inventors, once they are helped to discover the pleasure of inquiry, their motivation and interest explode" Loris Malaguzzi
