Strong Sense of Self: Curriculum Focus Term 1

Strong Sense of Self: Curriculum Focus Term 1

Care for Kindies is very proud of our comprehensive School Readiness Curriculum. The curriculum incorporates learning for all age groups from 6 weeks of age all the way up to those preparing for the transition to big school!

By the time children start kindergarten, we hope to instill a lifelong love of learning in each of them, to serve them well through their many years of formal education and beyond.

However, the school transition is not only about developing cognitive skills, so we also place a strong focus on being socially, emotionally and physically ready.

The focus for the first term each year is: Strong Sense of Self. This provides opportunities to focus on Self Esteem, Self -Sufficiency and Self Identification, recognition of belongings, name and surname, likes and dislikes.
