4 Year Old

In a friendly, caring environment, children are stimulated, challenged and actively encouraged to explore new ideas. Experiences and learning opportunities are planned so that children develop foundational skills and knowledge that are beneficial now, in the next stage of their education, and beyond.

We enable the children to experience and learn across many areas including art, early science and maths concepts, pre-literacy skills, music and movement, language, health, environmental education, creative play experiences and much more. In doing this our program also encompasses the five development outcomes and eight Practice Principles which are identified in the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework. Children are encouraged and supported to develop social and communication skills such as listening and negotiating. Throughout this year the children develop independence, respect for themselves and each other, creativity, curiosity and confidence.  

Each child is supported to participate in the program and to develop a love of learning. Each child’s learning and development is assessed as part of an on-going cycle of planning assessment and review. The planned program incorporates each child’s culture, abilities and interests.

We want children to thrive in our care, so our four year old program runs over 3 days with two short sessions and one long session. This learning environment provides the benefits of coming to kinder more consistently during the week (three days, rather than two) and helps the children to build and enjoy friendships, consolidate learning, become familiar with their environment, and to remember routines.

4 year old General Information

The State Government provides some funding towards the costs of operation, with fees covering the remainder.  We charge an excursion/incursion fee on top of standard fees so money does not need to be collected during session time. Parents are requested to help with kinder duty and are encouraged to become involved on the Committee of Management.
