Three Year Old Kindergarten Program

Learning through play, having fun each day!

We are looking forward to working with you and your child this year. Our primary focus will be to ensure your child feels safe and happy in our care and to create a smooth transition from home to our school environment.

Our program will be based on The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) which aims to encourage children to form new friendships and develop their spiritual, emotional, social, physical and cognitive skills in preparation for kindergarten.

The Three Year Old Kindergarten Staff are very experienced educators in the Early Years of Education.
Teacher: Kim Manov (Kim is our current Kindy Teacher)
Education Assistant: Krystal Nguyen (Krystal is our Camp Australia Coordinator)

Session Time: Fridays 8:40am – 2:40pm

Drop off and pick up will be at the door of the PP Classroom which is currently used by our Play Group.

The program will include play based activities such as; singing and dancing, stories and a range of sensory experiences and craft activities. Outdoor play and snack time will provide opportunities for socialisation and belonging. The children will be encouraged to make their own choices to foster independence and express their creativity.

As our program runs over a full day, the session will include a rest period so the children are able to have a rest if needed. Children who do not require a rest will be engaged in appropriate activities.

Please ensure you dress your child for three year old kindy in comfortable, practical clothing that will be easily removed for toileting. Please also bear in mind that despite our best efforts, paint may get on their clothing, so no “good” clothes at our three year old program please.

For our full day session your child will need to bring the following clearly labelled items;

  • Hat (school hat is optional),
  • Piece of fruit cut up in a container,
  • Drink bottle containing water only,
  • Packed lunch (please try to choose healthy options),
  • Two changes of clothing in case of accidents,
  • Small pillow for rest time,
  • Large school bag to carry everything home in (school bags are available),
  • Large box of tissues.

When you bring your child to three year old kindy room, you are welcome to stay for a puzzle or story. Once your child is settled, please kiss them goodbye and gently reassure them you will be back to pick them up at home time.
The children settle quickly once parents have left, we will always ring you if there are any issues. Please arrive on time at the end of the session to avoid your child becoming stressed.

We hope you and your child will have an enjoyable time with us!
