Preschoolers

Within the preschoolwe provide a wide variety of learning experiences. The program is based on the children’s interests and we follow the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). The children have many opportunities to direct their learning, being able to use their initiative and building their confidence.  In the preschool room the older children have the opportunity to be apart of the  Early Languages Learning Australia (ELLA)program, an Australian government initiative for young children to be able to learn another language. The Jolly Phonic program also takes place where the children enjoy learning the letter sounds phonetically, participating with a little song and actions all children can begin to recognise the letter names and corresponding sounds. In the preschool room we also have some amazing intentional teaching experiences and a preschool program, preparing the children for when they are leaving for school.
