Birth to Five Learning
Kindergarten is a valuable experience for children. Young children develop enormously between birth and age five. The skills and values learnt in the first few years of life stay with children forever and affect their ability to learn and succeed for the rest of their lives.
In Kindergarten children:
- Learn through play and activities planned by the teacher guided by the Early Years Learning Framework.
- Play with other children and discover, create, improvise and imagine.
- Test out their ideas, ask questions and expand their thinking.
- Use a wide range of equipment specially designed to support their learning.
- Spend time playing and learning as part of small and large groups and on their own.
- Build independence, confidence and skills for getting along with others.
- Develop literacy and numeracy skills and learn about the world around them.
