Our exceptional kindergarten and preschool program provides every opportunity to prepare your child for a positive start to their schooling years. Here, our educators strike a balance between child-initiated and teacher-led activities.
While still focusing on attentive care and play-based learning, our educators will foster your child’s natural desire to engage with educational programs for life. We deliver a School Readiness program that specialises in allowing your child to slowly adapt to the new school environment socially, emotionally and mentally before they even arrive. This program teaches the children a variety of literacy and numeracy skills, including how to write their names, identification of simple numbers and shapes, recognition skills, such as identifying their school bags, and a range of communications skills, tools and tactics.
We have connections with Erina Heights Public School, the Grammar School, Star of the Sea and Wambral Primary School. This helps us coordinate our School Readiness programs with school expectations.
When the time comes, your child will be ready to spread their wings and fly.
Available on our property is a beautiful bush inspired play space where we hold bush kindy sessions. The children are provided with minimal man-made resources while exploring this space to encourage connection to the natural environment, use of imagination and an opportunity to really use their physical skills.
In Bush Kindy children will have the freedom to explore, play, build, create, imagine, learn and use their senses to experience the outdoor environment and engage with one another when and how they choose. Bush Kindy is largely emergent, child directed and play based, allowing our little learners the time and space to develop their interests, skills and understanding through practical, hands on experiences.
We aim to provide the children with the opportunity to visit Bush Kindy at least once a week as studies show that children who spend more time outdoors in nature, develop a greater understanding and appreciation for our natural world and protecting it. As climate change is a very real issue effecting our children's future, we want to ensure our children are provided with a good understanding of how to live sustainability and appreciate the world we live, helping to create a bright future!
Our centre uses modern technology to provide the children with programs such as Reading Eggs & Mathletics in the pre-school room. The class also has access to a smart board for sharing news and celebrating each other's achievements as a class.
We support our families and children’s health with regular health screenings throughout the year, most of which are covered under Medicare. Health check-ups can be daunting for children and families due to the unfamiliar environment. We support families in ensuring children receive all their health check-ups by offering the following in centre!
Dental Check-up - Educational in house event plus dental check up with a qualified dentist
Eye Screeners - Eye test for children aged 4-5 years
Speech Screeners - For children from 2 years with a speech therapist.
Hearing Test - For children aged from 2 years
