Every moment is planned to delight.
At Kindy Cottage, playful learning and loving relationships underpin the planned, guided, wonder-filled and spontaneous learning experiences.
Facilitated by qualified and experienced Educators who guide with love.
Our qualified kindergarten teacher liaises with local schools to deliver an inspired program which prepares children
for their next adventure to school.
It’s the training curriculum that powers today’s education.
Children are curious, love to play, they’re great at asking questions. And they know how to make mess (and they do this well).
STEM allows children to do all the spontaneous, fun things, while developing concrete skills in the process.
What does problem-solving, critical analysis and creative thinking look like as a child plays?
It’s a hands-on learning approach. That can happen anywhere: in our library, outdoors planting seeds in the garden, even on rainy days.
Children are involved with baking.
Educators can describe to your child what they are doing while cooking.
Not only can science be explored in the kitchen, but maths too. Measuring ingredients, numbers, weighing, and counting out the steps, timing the cooking are all early maths concepts. And also with sewing and crafts.
Choosing what plants and seeds, where to put them so they will thrive, when do they need to be watered are all tasks that need investigation and enquiry. A concept. A plan. A project.
Digital technologies are already part of the everyday lives of our children at home, and it’s the same at Kindy Cottage.
Using tools such as interactive whiteboards, IPads and audio-visual devices is an effective and efficient means to support the kindergarten program.
Fostering a deep love of learning.
We will keep it simple, positive and fun.
This enables each one to more easily open their minds to new ideas. To approach new tasks with a confident spirit of enquiry.
We aim to educate both the hearts and minds of children. And it’s amazing to watch as growing confidence strengthens bonds between children and their families.
We’re delighted to have an innovative, inspiring team approach to encourage your child’s learning.
You’ll know how your child is progressing as you read your child’s personal portfolio. Continually growing (just like your little one), it’s a visual journey of the learning throughout the year.
A little chapter in their life story.
Something for them to keep, and show with pride.
And, you know they’ll have so much to share with you.
Together, we’ll be exploring and engaging with local businesses and community groups. What a fun way to discover new opportunities.
Children experience working together to create special occasions throughout the year. Your child can be part of meaningful preparations as they brainstorm, plan, rehearse a play, bake and decorate for an event.
Share your talents and knowledge.
Kindness Day. Pet Day. Grandparents Day. We warmly invite families to initiate additional celebrations important in their own culture and family tradition.
