Our play-based Kindergarten program is for four (4) year old children. This means your child(ren) must celebrate their fourth birthday on or before the 30th April of the year they wish to commence with us.
We run four (4) Kindergarten groups each with an average of 20 students. Our students attend their group for a total of 30 hours over a two (2) week period. Sessions are a minimum of three (3) and a maximum of six (6) hours long over two (2) or three (3) days per week, depending on the group. The days and times that children attend Kindergarten is subject to whichever group they are allocated upon the offer of a place.
Our staff includes a Kindergarten Coordinator, three (3) part-time Kindergarten Teachers and four Kindergarten Teachers’ Aides. All staff are qualified, registered and meet the requirements of the College regarding their acceptance and support of our Christian foundations, our Christian ethos and the Christian practice of the College.
Each session is taken by a Kindergarten teacher and a Teachers’ Aide, allowing time for reporting, administration and organisation by the Coordinator.
Please note that childcare is not available for our Kindergarten students.
Students who are enrolled in our College Kindergarten normally move up into a position in one of our Prep classes the following year and then progress through the College. As is current practice, this is subject to a child’s readiness for school.
