Lynn, Amanda and several other educators guide our little pre-schoolers in this room. Our kindy focus remains very firmly on learning through play. As the children are gradually becoming aware of others, forming friendships & strong relationships we allow their choice of play, particular toys and the experienced educators are able to lead the play & discussion to be inclusive for all the children.
Social play & situations is again a dominant theme in the kindy curriculum, many day's feature dress ups, picnics, home play, community people (police, Dr's, chefs). The children are supported in positive behaviour, role modelling the right behaviour towards each other, to support and care for each other.
The kindy make use of Jolly Phonics to support early literacy and during our mat sessions we encourage reading stories, looking at pictures, singing songs and many other resources to encourage this skill.
