3 year old Kinder is a play-based program available as a pre-kinder 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.
The aim of the program is not the same as in more formal pre-school sessions. 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.
Although Little Kinder is not as formal as Pre-School, it is still 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.
Little Kinder is not subsidised by Government therefore, parents must pay.
