Heritage Early Education & Kindergarten kindergarten Hamilton – In the state of Queensland, Kindergarten is the child’s year before the first school year – Prep. A child can be enrolled in kindergarten if they are 4 on, or prior to, June 30 in the year prior to School.
The team at Heritage Early Education & Kindergarten understand the need for a supportive framework for both the individual child and family in the build up to “Big School”, it’s a big change and we are here to help. We take pride in preparing the kids for Prep with our Play-Based Kindergarten Program. This is led by our Bachelor Trained Early Childhood Educator 5 days a week. We offer full long day care hours providing flexibility for our working families.
In our Kindergarten program we foster a learning atmosphere focused on individual learning, needs, styles and abilities as we prepare for the Prep year of school. The Kindergarten program is geared towards developing your child’s social, intellectual, physical, language and emotional abilities. Through our program the Children will learn how to:
- Communicate developing language skills to express feelings, ideas, and needs
- Socialise and build friendships
- Cooperate and work alongside other children
- Develop independence and build confidence
- Explore ideas and feelings creatively through art, dance and drama
- Develop problem solving abilities
- Develop literacy and numeracy skills.
Our Kindergarten has indoor and outdoor spaces which will spark your child’s imagination with endless options to explore. Our custom designed ‘mud kitchen’ is one of the many popular play features our Kindergarten children enjoy in their journey with us.
We support and encourage each individual child as they develop friendships and build a sense of belonging within the Kindergarten group, growing in confidence for the transition to Prep.
