Focusing on preparing children for starting school, our preschools provide care and education for 3 to 6 year olds.
We provide the primary nurturing care young children need and through our Ready for School and Ready for Life programs, we help prepare children with the skills they need to be confident, self-assured and independent students. Our curriculum includes individualised programs that are designed to suit the level of each child’s stage of development and socialisation.
The individual programs for each child are challenging and appropriate to their stage of development, encouraging children to think, feel, ask and explore as well as enhance their feelings of self-esteem and self-worth.
At our preschools we encourage healthy eating. Children are asked to bring a nutritious, packed lunch in a clearly labelled lunch box and a drink in a clearly labelled drink bottle. This in turn provides grounding in the normal school day schedule.
Ready for School and Life Programs
We want our community’s children to have the best start to life and our Ready for School and Ready for Life programs help prepare your child to leave our care with the confidence and skills to meet the challenges of school and life.
The programs are underpinned by the Australian Government’s National Quality Framework (NQF) and offer a clear and easy to understand program that focuses on the things that matter most:
- Communication and language;
- Physical development;
- Personal, social and emotional development.
These areas are particularly important in developing a child’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning and for building their ability to form relationships and develop basic life skills.
