Choose the kindergarten for your child

“The National Curriculum for Early Childhood - The Early Years Learning Framework - guides our teaching which we underpin with our own centre philosophy. 

“Having achieved the highest rating of exceeding the National quality standard for early childhood education and care, The Kindergarten is justly proud of the education and care programme they offer to the families of the Macleay.” Director Margaret Hammersley said.

“If your child is two years or over and you wish to investigate and explore your options for early childhood education, don’t hesitate to contact The Kindergarten.

“Early Childhood is a time of wonder and learning and as we now know it is also the time when the young child’s brain is developing at its fastest rate. 

“As a parent of a young child it is therefore important to seek the best for your child when considering enrolment in an early childhood centre.

“The Kindergarten is such a centre.

“Our philosophy embraces an image of a child who is capable, creative and competent; a child whose curiosity will be embraced in an environment of exploration and discovery.

“Laughter and energy abound with both age groups as educators facilitate a programme based on emergent literacy and numeracy. 

“Emphasis is also placed upon creating a strong sense of belonging in this vibrant and exciting new world of learning.

“Children are natural researchers questioning what they see. In both playrooms children will explore early literacy and numeracy as they are guided through their discoveries.

PLAY TIME: Early childhood is a time of wonder, exploring and learning when your child's brain is constantly developing at its fastest rate.

“Many languages of the children are made visible in a respectful and caring environment that enables each child to express their individuality and theories.

“Learning will be enriched as friends and relationships evolve supported by a high staff to child ratio.” Margaret Hammersley said.
