Kindy – (4 years to 5 years)

Fun, warmth and a supportive environment help make your child’s kindy experience the vital link to successful schooling.

Using both the EYLF and the WA Kindergarten Curriculum Guidelines, children experience a program designed to develop skills for a lifelong love of learning such as predicting, observing, problem solving, communicating ideas, experimenting and selfexpression.

Our day includes…

  • a morning mat session
  • time to explore our specifically designed learning centres
  • music curriculum
  • number time
  • literacy
  • a yoga and meditation session
  • free play

Our curriculum has the added benefit of helping children develop resilience to cope with the big changes they face during their transition to school.

We place emphasis on encouraging independence, building self-esteem, and developing effective social skills that allow children to cooperate and negotiate with their peers.

During number time your child experiences activities that allow them to count, to recognise and arrange items, sort and match objects, to create patterns, to measure and weigh items and to begin to use mathematical language such as ‘more’, ‘less’ and ‘the same as’.

For literacy, children build on the skills taught thus far including letter and sound recognition, name writing and recognition of sight words in what can only be described as a “print rich” environment.

For example, around the room many forms of literature are explored including poems, recipes, letters, newspapers, stories, alphabet charts and audio stories. We provide many opportunities for reading, storytelling and discussions.

Of course children also enjoy:

  • The award-winning music curriculum, including preparing for and performing concerts
  • Art, craft, outdoor and indoor play incorporating nature and sustainability, and safe risk taking
  • Strong emphasis on physically participating as individuals, small groups and within the whole group, which includes links to the community via excursions and guest visitors

And here’s where it gets really exciting…

Our fabulous Early Childhood (Kindy) Teacher liaises with our 3 nearest schools Atwell Primary School, Harmony Primary School and Piara Waters Primary School to ensure our Programs are closely aligned.

Yes, we are committed be being as proactive as possible to fully prepare your child for a smooth transition to Year 1

Children also learn through…

  • Care for and use of our two organic garden beds to plant, nurture, harvest and cook produce
  • Shared kitchen area with sinks, fridges, freezers, microwave oven and dishwasher is utilised for fully supervised cooking activities which children just love – incorporates life skills such as setting the table and washing up
  • The immaculate learning environment inside and out thanks to our professional cleaners and gardener – all children are encouraged to do their part to keep their area clean and sustainable
  • Individual lockers encourage taking responsibility for their belongings, and ample storage ensures learning are tidy when required
  • Information board above the lockers keeps you informed of the day’s activities and upcoming events

The Kindy classroom is set up in learning areas so that all children can explore, experiment and investigate with the carefully chosen resources in 1-on-1 teaching, small group and whole group sessions both at our facility and in the community.

Nothing is left to chance to ensure your child is fully prepared for school.

Daily Communication

We understand one of your greatest interests is how well your child or baby fits into their away from home care environment, and what they do each day. So we make every effort to keep you informed:

Daily communication #1 – Information Board

At the end of every day you’ll see a summary of what your child did and, when the activity permits, photos of them in action (this provides a general summary of what your child has done however, please be aware, logistically it may not be possible to photograph every child every day). Located above the lockers, this is also an important communication tool for upcoming events and any parent notices.

Daily Communication #2 – Emails every afternoon

A summary of what appears on the Information Board is emailed to you to read each afternoon so you are kept up to date.

This is very satisfying for parents because it gives you an insight into what your child has said, done, and experienced during their day. Parents appreciate this is a fantastic way to keep you in touch with how your child is involved, and makes the whole child care process so much more fun and informative for you.

Our educators love to capture these moments to share with the parents each day.

Be assured…

Your child will experience a warm, welcoming and loving atmosphere where they can grow and flourish in a safe, clean and supportive environment with new and exciting facilities and curriculum.

And you’ll see for yourself… each morning them running out the door because they can’t wait to get to all the fun learning they love at Leap Start!!
