Top Kids and Kindergarten
Top Kids & Kindergarten Program
These programs are housed within the same room, with the ability to partition the two for separate programming.
The Top Kids Room provides quality education and care for those children preparing to enter school within the following two year period. Children are aged between 3 and 4 years old. Children participate in a 3 year old kindergarten program with the focus being on positive peer and educator relationships, sharing with others, resources, space and ideas; understanding instructions, following a routine; completing small tasks and paying attention.
Brunswick Crèche houses an integrated kindergarten program within the 3-5 Room (Top Kids Room). The integrated four-year-old kindergarten program is available to those children who are eligible for school enrolment in the following year. Whilst all children in the room benefit from this program, there is the ability to partition the room for some activities.
The room caters to 32 children with a ratio of one educator for every 11 children.
We have a strengths-based approach to teaching and learning.
We believe that every child has different learning styles, preferred ways of playing, and exploring their environment. Therefore, educators will provide different opportunities for the children to be involved in their learning environment.
Children should have the opportunity to choose what to play with and when to play with it. Therefore educators will provide a learning environment with age appropriate accessible experiences and open ended materials to the children
Our program is individualised based on children’s interests and skills. We focus on the child’s strengths and abilities, using interests as the base for programming and planning is shared between educators, families and learners.Our program provides opportunities for children to experience successes, show what they can do, learn from what they cannot yet do, grow in confidence and look forward to the next challenge that is presented.
