Kindy Program

At Southern Barossa Childcare we provide a comprehensive kindy program designed to prepare your child for school and life long learning.  Our kindy program operates through the entire long day session to ensure your child has time to engage and learn at their own pace, follow interests and develop social skills in a play based and guided learning environment. The kindy program is available to all children attending in the kindy room every day the centre is open.

We are able to offer a full year of kindy through our Early Learning Centre for those families able to access mid year intakes at their chosen school.  Children accessing mid year intakes can attend our ELC program for the required 15 hours of kindy per week from July to July to ensure they are able to complete a full year of kindy prior to starting school.

Our service has one Early Childhood Teacher. Sue is the centre Director and consults with Educators to provide engaging programs across the centre with the support of Diploma Qualified and additional educators. Our focus on a combination of play based learning, emergent curriculum and guided play assist children to transition from the less structured early childhood experiences to the more structured school environment, whilst providing children with a broad range of experiences designed to enhance curiosity, build confidence and encourage attitudes for life long learning.

In our kindy room we are focussed on building skills across the following areas

  • Fun and enjoying learning

    eg: self regulation, sitting for a group time, organising your personal belongings, developing independence skills, toileting routines
