The Kindergarten program (15 hours per week) is delivered over five full days a fortnight at Richmond Street Leederville. Kindergarten is non-compulsory, however, regular attendance and engagement with the program support greater outcomes and readiness for full-time schooling the following year. The curriculum has a strong focus on pre-literacy and numeracy skills as well as health and wellbeing through physical and social experiences. Each classroom is purpose-built with a maximum capacity of twenty children in each group. An active P&C and community continue to support the Kindy to develop the nature playspace project and other capital works projects to continuously update and provide a learning environment that is engaging, comfortable, stimulating and developmentally appropriate. Access to a Speech Therapist and Early Intervention team supports children and families to access additional resources to assist with learning challenges. Every class is managed by an Early Childhood teacher and Assistant. We are committed to play-based intentional teaching practices that build confidence, resilience, independence and essential knowledge and skills in our youngest yet most enthusiastic learners.
