Kinross Wolaroi School Pre-Kinder provides qualified, motivated staff who create a welcoming, safe and stimulating environment where your child will be able to enjoy learning through play, to grow in confidence and to fulfill their potential.
We value Early Childhood Education as the foundation for lifelong learning.
With this in mind, we believe it is important for children to be in an environment that is consistent and secure. Our role is to provide children in our care with a loving comfortable, safe and stimulating atmosphere, allowing the children to grow into capable, confident people enhancing their understanding of the world around them.
It is important to think of the children in terms of a whole group, building relationships and social skills, learning empathy and understanding towards those around them. We think of the children as unique individuals, taking into account their needs and interests and giving them opportunities to express themselves without judgement. An optimum level of care and education needs to be maintained for all children.
Relationships are pivotal to the success of an early childhood environment. Positive relationships with the children create happy, confident people with a love of learning. Positive relationships with families are based on co-operation and a mutual respect for the reciprocal roles that each plays in the lives of the child. Positive staff relationships creates a calm, happy feeling in the room and we act as role models for the children to learn from.
Play is central to children’s learning. Play is a child’s work. Children play because it is fun. The environment should provide opportunities for the children to create, problem solve, question, discover and have fun in their play.
Seeing the world through a child’s eyes is very special and keeps us very grounded. We feel lucky everyday to do what we do.
