Why is Kindy important?
Our school’s Kindergarten program is based on the Queensland kindergarten learning guideline which provides advice for planning, interacting with children, monitoring and assessing learning as teachers engage children in active, language rich learning through play, real-life engagements, routines and transitions.
Foundations for Success is a resource which acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples ways of knowing and being and supports the embedding of personal and cultural identities and connections with families and communities in the learning program.
The kindergarten program further develops children’s thinking and problem-solving skills as well as their language, social and creative capabilities. These skills form the foundations for engaging in the content of the Foundation – Year 2 requirements of the Australian Curriculum, supporting continuity of learning for children across kindergarten to Year 2 and a successful transition to Prep
