Values

The excitement of our four-year-old Kindergarten students is reflected through the laughter and chatter you hear as you approach our purpose built Kindergarten rooms.  

Their zeal and enthusiasm as they begin their first year of educational influence, outside of their main family, is almost contagious. These young, impressionable little people soak up and grow in the knowledge around them through play and interaction with staff and other students. 

A healthy learning environment is created where children are loved, cared for and respected as individuals who belong to communities. The children begin to know who they are and what they can achieve by being, belonging and becoming the person God created them to be.

Core Subjects

Our Kindergarten program is structured through a series of informal and directed play–based activities to allow the children to learn how to listen to instructions, make friendships, share, be honest, add to their own knowledge and grow as learners. It is through their innate curiosity, exploration and engagement with peers and educators that children begin to make sense of God’s world and the valuable part they play within their community.
