Kindy – (4 years to 5 years)
The right foundation for success at primary school.
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 self-expression.
Our curriculum has the added benefit of helping children develop resilience to cope with the big changes they face during their transition to school.
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.
Our day includes…
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’.

And here’s where it gets really exciting…
Yes, we are committed be being as proactive as possible to fully prepare your child for a smooth transition to Year 1 in 2017.
One other thing parents love about Kindy at Leap Start Early Learning Child Care is the flexibility we provide families because our Kindy is not just for “school hours”, so working families can still meet their many commitments.
Not only that but we also…
Cater for your child’s 5-day fortnight!
Yes, Leap Start gives you the ultimate in flexibility. Your child can attend their School program on the schedule days and then join our Kindy Room on non-School Days!
We recognise the 5-day fortnight common to Kindy so we have allocated a number of places for children from other Kindy programs so they can enjoy “full” weeks as required.
So please don’t delay, our Kindy Room is a fantastic opportunity to give your Child the best learning experience as well as the best possible preparation for their start at School.
