3 year old Kinder is a play-based program available as a pre-4 year old option. Curriculum content is based on the Victorian Early Years Framework. It is an opportunity for children to interact with their peers in a group situation away from their parents and usual carers.
Through first hand play experiences children will have the opportunity to:
. Play with other children and relate to other adults
. Begin to belong to a group
. Become more independent and self confident
. Begin to learn the concepts of turn taking and negotiating
. Experience a variety of materials and activities
. Learn through watching, doing and listening.
Our three year old program is a developmentally planned program keeping in mind group and individual requirements of the children.
There are 2 sessions which run for 3 hours per session.
Three year old kindergarten is not subsidised by the Government, therefore parents are required to pay full fees. The state government have pledged that by 2022, three year old kindergarten will be subsidised for at least 5 hours per week.
