Welcome to Kindergarten

Introduction to Kindergarten

We believe that all children are curious and have a sense of wonder about their world. Your child will bring a wealth of knowledge and experiences to Kindergarten and have their own theories about the world around them.

Our role is to nurture their thirst for learning and to guide them as they seek answers to their questions. The Kindy  environment is designed to  promote learning through play, collaboration and the expressive arts.

Kindy have been having so much fun listening to stories and exploring oral language through a range of texts.
This week we read ‘Wombat Stew’ and created our own Kindy Wombat Stew in the classroom.
We had so much fun reading this story we took it out to the playground. Everyone had a turn at stirring the ‘ooey, gooey, yummy, crunchy’ Wombat Stew. So much interaction and engagement, a wonderful way to start the day!

Our Kindy group have settled in so beautifully.
They interact with each other and their teachers with care and respect. They are enjoying exploring and learning in their new environment. Our Kindy programme is designed to stimulate the children with investigations and provocations that challenge them and develop their higher level thinking skills.
Enthusiasm, confidence, commitment and persistence are all positive dispositions encouraged in our Kindy to develop successful, happy learners. This week we set out to explore amazing artists around the world. We will celebrate this learning journey in Term 3 with our St Johns Art Exhibition.
