Our Kindergarten & School Readiness Program
3 – 6 years

Our exceptional kindergarten school readiness program provides every opportunity to prepare your child for a positive start to their schooling years. Here our educators strike a balance between child-initiated and teacher-led activities.

School Readiness is a key aspect of Early Learning

Beckenham Early learning’s school readiness program is designed to prepare children for the transition to the more structured and independent environment of attending school. School readiness is not all about academics though, we recognise that children learn best through play, and that more important than skill development is their development of social and emotional wellbeing.

Through the play-based curriculum children are developing many skills which will be beneficial to them at school, such as developing a sense of belonging, social skills necessary for group participation, responding to and coping with change and developing literacy and numeracy skills.

Our curriculum is displayed in the room and updated daily, we encourage all families to read and give feedback about the activities, this feedback is incorporated into the curriculum and assists the educators tailer the learning experiences to each child’s specific needs and strengths.

Healthy Nutrition

Breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and late snack are provided to meet the individual needs of your child and you only need to provide formula or expressed breast milk (if required).

Some children may have very specific food requirements due to family preferences, cultural background, allergies and or food intolerances. We work closely and in consultation with all families to make sure individual children’s needs are met as part of our menu planning process.

All meals are served in our designated dining area to build connections with the children and educators.
