Childhood is a very short period in life where you are free to play, learn and explore ? without expectations, comparison, testing and fear of failure. We embrace a child?s right to play and facilitate a rich learning environment which is full of possibilities, meaning and reflective of a child?s needs and interests.?
Our preschool is located on the grounds of Our Lady of Good Counsel Primary School and caters for children aged 3 ? 5 years. We welcome children and families of all backgrounds regardless of their choice of primary school. Our operating hours are 8.15am ? 3.45pm during the school term and fees start at $53 per day.
Current research tells us that children learn best through play. Play provides opportunities for children to learn as they discover, create, improvise and imagine. It allows children to think critically, hypothesize, challenge theories, make mistakes and present their ideas.
Our curriculum is designed to enhance the personal, social, cognitive, physical and spiritual wellbeing of each child. Our children engage in creative arts, literacy, mathematics and science. The kids absolutely love our ?Bush Kinder? program ? where we walk to a local bush site to play, visit Aboriginal sites and learn about the area and how to care for it.
We also teach French! Research shows that there are many benefits to learning a language so we incorporate French into our daily experiences through play, songs and games. Our families enjoy hearing their little ones bring their new words home!
We are blessed to be part of the community at Our Lady of Good Counsel. Being on the school site provides us with opportunities to explore the playground, classrooms, library and canteen. Regardless of which primary school your child attends, they go to school with much greater confidence having already had the experience of a school community.
We?d love to talk you through our curriculum and show you around our beautiful preschool!
