Kindy Parents and Families

Kindy Parents and Families

The kindy year of learning is a wonderful opportunity for your child to develop skills in a supportive and nurturing environment.

Approved kindergarten programs develop your child's physical, social, intellectual, language and emotional abilities. Children will have opportunities to learn how to:

  • Use language to communicate ideas, feelings and needs
  • Make friends and cooperate with other children
  • Become more independent and confident in their abilities
  • Creatively express ideas and feelings through art, dance and dramatic play
  • Identify, explore and solve problems
  • Develop reading, writing and numeracy skills.

The routine will most likely include a combination of indoor and outdoor play, group and individual activities, morning and afternoon tea, lunch break and a rest.

Your child will take part in individual and group activities such as block play, painting, games, puzzles, storytelling, dress-ups, dancing and singing.

Children can take part in outdoor physical activities and interact with the natural environment.

Through these experiences your child will build on their knowledge, explore and express new ideas, learn to cooperate with others and make friends.
