Why choose our Kindergarten Programme

Bush School

Whole-body experiences, especially those in natural environments, open up our senses and cognitive function in ways that learning indoors cannot achieve.

We take full advantage of our private school grounds and their unique position adjoining Lake Claremont to offer an authentic nature play programme, including Bush School and Bush Art.

Student-centred learning

We combine the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program, a globally recognised curriculum, with the Reggio Emilia approach which emphasises student-centred, hands-on learning.

With the guidance of our Kindergarten teachers, each child develops the foundations for pre-literacy and pre-numeracy, while uncovering the world around them and exploring their passions, encouraging curiosity and uncovering their interests.

We teach music, every day

Music education plays an essential role in developing flexible, focused and skilled minds, and it starts with our Pre-Kindergarten & Kindergarten students.

Students discover the fascinating links between music, memory and the brain with our Music Every Day programme.

Language learning

As an International Baccalaureate school, we nurture kindy students with a global outlook. This begins when the brain is very receptive to learning languages with our students learning French.

Tailored support

With regular assessments we are able to tailor your child's learning programme, developing skills in a wide range of areas.

All children are also screened by our Speech Pathologist and Occupational Therapist, so we can identify early any underlying issues that may need attention.
