Early Childhood is an exciting time for children to find wonder in their world – a time to explore, create, imagine, improvise and test ideas. It is a time for children to take a risk knowing that a safe environment and caring people will be there to support them. It is a time to explore their own identity and sense of belonging, discover and delight in diversity, and discover ways of relating to others.
Canning Vale Prekindy offers a sessional prekindy program for children who have turned 3 years old and who are eligible to attend 4 year old kindergarten in the following year. Our program encourages children to explore, discover, create, learn and express their ideas while they play.
Our program is based on the Nationally Approved Early Year’s Learning Framework, which explores the ideas of “Belonging, Being and Becoming” and draws on the principles of the Reggio Emilia and Nature based approaches to learning.
Children will have the opportunity to engage in a rich learning program that is open ended, hands on, based on their interests and encourages interaction and the development of social skills.
The program provides long periods on uninterrupted time for children to engage with each other, the environment and educators and encourages children to develop dispositions for learning such as persistence, curiosity, independence and resourcefulness.
Canning Vale Prekindy has been assessed against the National Quality Standards for Early Childhood Education & Care and has been rated as “EXCEEDING” all 18 standards of the 7 Quality Areas.
