3 YEAR OLD
At Barngeong Reserve Kindergarten we believe that for a child to reach their full potential they need to feel comfortable in their surroundings, with their peers and with their teachers. The 3 year old program aims to provide a caring, safe, loving environment, where children can begin to explore and extend their learning through play and repetition. The children are encouraged to work independently, in small groups and as part of a whole group.
We are excited to be able to offer a “Rising 4s” Program at Barngeong Reserve Kindergarten. The program is designed for those children that may find the 3YO program less challenging and would be turning 4 years old in the first six months of the year. The program consists of activities to enhance and encourage the development of children within this age group, allowing them a positive start to their educational journey.
4 YEAR OLD
In the 4YO Group we aim to provide a stimulating program that caters for the children’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual interests, needs and skills. In accordance with the Early Years Learning Framework. We offer each child 15 hours per week, which provides more time for the children to explore new experiences, develop strong relationships with other children and empower them to be prepared for school by the end of their kindergarten year. The program’s we provide are flexible and varied, as we think it is important to accommodate current interests and spontaneity. The program combines areas for individual play and group learning. We encourage each child to value and respect themselves, their peers, teachers, and the kindergarten environment. We recognize the importance of families and allow opportunities for them to play an active role in their child’s learning at kindergarten.
Our Toddler Group aims to provide the opportunity for your children to play in a safe and friendly environment and to enjoy new activities with other children of the same age group. Toddler Group also enables you to get together with other parents to chat and share experiences. Play is the most important way children learn and develop. Play provides opportunities to enhance skills in many ways including language, physical abilities, intellectual and social development while developing self-confidence.Toddler Group provides the opportunity for children to move through 3YO and 4YO kindergarten with ease, knowing the environment is safe and familiar.The centre will provide the equipment, toys, books, paints, glue and glitter which the staff member will have ready upon arrival for each session. We are hoping to have a Toddler Group running in 2019.
