We have a co-educational kindy
We believe that young children learn best through play and we facilitate this through open ended periods of time where the children are able to engage in a variety of different activities. These activities are based on observations of what the children are interested in and what skills they need to further develop.
The St Aidan's co-educational Kindergarten program is based on the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines which ensures that we are constantly meeting the children’s developmental and learning needs. Children engage in a range of early literacy and numeracy activities through intentional teaching opportunities, hands-on experience and play. Educators plan and identify opportunities to challenge, support and extend students in both small and large groups as well as individually.
An important focus of our Kindergarten program is developing social and independence skills, and learning to operate as part of a group. These are all important skills that help the students as they move onto a more formal schooling experience.
Our Kindergarten program evolves during the week, based on interests of the children, and can be viewed on our noticeboard retrospectively. This will illustrate what we have been learning at Kindy and the different activities we have been enjoying that arise from the children’s interest.
