Our Kookaburra Preschool Classroom 3-5 years
In our preschool room, we are excited to offer a very child-led approach to learning which is supported by an experienced Bachelor trained educator. Building upon the child’s interests, we encourage the children to share their input into what they would like to learn about which gives us an opportunity to focus on many different learning topics throughout the year.
We endeavour to create a balance of both child led and teacher guided by providing different mediums, materials and guidance which supports the children’s learning and extends on necessary knowledge. Our educators scaffold learning in a meaningful and purposeful way and work collaboratively with our junior preschoolers to ensure that they are building on essential skills to become successful lifelong learners and begin to touch upon their preparation for school.
We offer a high quality, comprehensive school readiness programme which increases the children’s knowledge of numeracy, literacy and STEM concepts.
A key aspect of our senior preschool room is expanding on existing social and emotional skills, as research shows the biggest determinants of academic success at school relate directly to social and emotional development in children. We effectively promote further continuation of these skills by providing our senior preschoolers with opportunities to take on more independence as they prepare for their next year at school.
