Pre Kindy

PRE KINDY/JUNIOR KINDY

We provide a quality program in the Pre Kindy room that is designed to meet the needs of all the children. Each child has their individual needs met as this environment is a whole new experience where they get to develop their social skills in a fun, safe and secure environment.

Children of this age are starting to understand social skills like sharing and being kind. They often enjoy being with other children and can now play together more. Our educators will model communication strategies to support children to initiate interactions and join in play and social experiences in ways that sustain positive relationships with other children. Learning environments are organized in ways that promote small group interactions and play experiences.

Children start to show enthusiasm for participating in physical play and negotiate play spaces. Our educators provide a range of active and restful experiences throughout the day and support children to make appropriate decisions regarding participation.

Children are starting to follow and extend their own interests with enthusiasm and concentration. Educators at Butterfly Childcare will listen carefully to children’s ideas and discuss with them how these ideas might be developed. Opportunities are provided for children to revisit their ideas and extend their thinking.

Play is the vehicle through which children learn, develop and acquire skills and knowledge. Children need unlimited opportunities to engage in play in all of its forms with freedom to explore and experiment, with necessary limits clearly stated and consistently maintained. A variety of experiences and activities will ensure that your child has the opportunity to develop to their full potential in all areas.
