School Readiness Program

Our exceptional kindergarten and preschool program provides every opportunity to prepare your child for a positive start to their schooling years. Here, our educators strike a balance between child-initiated and teacher-led activities.

While still focusing on attentive care and play-based learning, our educators will foster your child’s natural desire to engage with educational programs for life. We deliver a School Readiness program that specialises in allowing your child to slowly adapt to the new school environment socially, emotionally and mentally before they even arrive. This program teaches the children a variety of literacy and numeracy skills, including how to write their names, identification of simple numbers and shapes, recognition skills, such as identifying their school bags, and a range of communications skills, tools and tactics.

Woolworths Fresh Food Tour Excursion

A fun day out for the children to explore out of the classroom and into Woolworths! Woolworths bring wonders of fruit and vegetable to life by using all five senses to engage in activities. The children will also be taken behind the scenes of the sustainability efforts around food-waste management and the importance of environmental care.
