The transition from Preschool to Kindergarten is gentle, and creative play remains a priority. Cooperation and sharing skills are also emphasised to nurture social and emotional well-being.

The class day is structured around a predictable schedule called a ‘rhythm’, with pre-literacy and numeracy skills combined with other activities that develop cognitive learning and new motor skills.

A typical daily rhythm includes:

– Group circle time with songs, poems, movement

– Indoor, self-directed play

– Morning tea preparation, tidying up

– Craft time

– Outdoor, self-directed play

– Story time

– Bushwalk or games
