It provides a smooth transition from home and/or childcare to school. The Preschool shares human and physical resources with the school, such as: staff meetings, professional development, administration, library, gymnasium, assembly and cross-age tutoring (older students working with the preschool children). Using the Early Years Learning Framework we continually reflect on our effectiveness and quality program through our Quality Improvement Plan aligned with the National Quality Standards.
The pre-entry program is negotiated in term 3 and 4 depending on availability of spaces. Children who turn 4 before May 1st of any given year can enrol to start Preschool at the beginning of that year.
Children attend two full days of preschool per week from 8:30 AM to 3:15 PM and one half day every second Friday morning from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM.
Group one children attend Mondays, Wednesdays and odd weeks on a Friday mornings (eg weeks 1,3,5,7,9).
Group 2 children attend Tuesdays and Thursdays and every even week Friday morning (ie week 2,4,6,8).
Young children are born ready to learn, and they learn and grow every time you interact with them. Visit www.greatstart.sa.edu.au for everyday ideas for you and your child.
