At Learn Play Grow we provide a Pre-Kindy program aimed for children aged 3-5 years old. This is an interactive, play based program that prepares your child for lifelong learning and a successful transition into Kindergarten. The program is designed to acknowledge each child as a capable and resourceful learner and support your child’s sense of self and wellbeing.
We provide your children with a safe indoor and outdoor environment where they can learn, seek out knowledge, and explore at their own pace. We encourage further learning to foster self-confidence, self-esteem, and independence. All of which ultimately shape them into children who are ready to take on school with a positive attitude. Children are encouraged to explore different concepts and extend on their knowledge through play-based learning and positive social experiences. We aim to provide children with the confidence to interact with adults and other peers, encouraging them to communicate their needs and wants and to be able to have an active approach to learning. Children are inspired to be the best they can be through promoting respectful, life-enhancing relationships.
