Child's Programs - Kindergarten

Quantin Binnah Kindergarten educators, staff and committee work in partnership to provide our kindergarten with early childhood programs which engage children in quality learning experiences, in a community and centre based environment. We endeavour to provide a welcoming caring, inclusive and supportive environment to all children and their families. We embrace and support children of all skills, abilities and cultures; acknowledging children’s personal, family and cultural histories and shape their learning for development. We view the whole child as an active citizen, capable of learning and contributing to their world.

Kindergarten is a unique play based learning environment that promotes childrens learning and development through experimentation, trial and error, watching, listening and participating. It is provided as part of a sessional Kindergarten program here at Quantin Binnah. Kindergarten is designed to improve your childs development in the following key areas:

  • Language, literacy and numeracy skills such as reading stories and counting objects
  • Independance and self-confidence
  • Social skills, like how to play with other childrenin a calm, sharing and rewarding way
  • Self-awareness and respect for others
  • Emotional skills, such as understanding their own feelings and those of others
  • A joy for learning and group activities, such as talking, singing, dancing, drawing and making things togother with other children their own age
