The Preschool area caters for children from approx 3½ to 5 years old.
We understand that preschoolers are learning to make sense of the world, they’re developing literacy, numeracy and social skills and they are especially discovering who they are; therefore we provide a more complex learning environment for both individual and group experiences. Further, our 4½ year olds are involved in a transition to school program.
Children are able to have access to resources such as family play, paint, books which enables them to express themselves which also encourages numeracy and literacy. Mat times, where children are reads stories and songs, enables children to exchange ideas and extend their imagination which encourages exploration.
We have access to a wide, natural section next door which has extended our children’s outdoor experience. This space allows children to run freely and explore the natural environment. Our outdoor environment is aesthetic to the eye, it includes natural resources to create curiosity and is open ended for exploration. We have a rock climbing wall and balancing equipment to challenge the children to explore using their bodies.
