Kindergarten

Government Approved Kindergarten Program
Our children’s early learning journey concludes with a wonderful, enriching adventure: kindergarten! Sesame Lane’s Government Approved Kindergarten Program is staffed by experienced, qualified early childhood Teachers carefully selected for their caring way with children. 

Ready as they’ll ever be!
Why do we have Kindergarten programs? To help children aged between 4 and 5 get ready for school through play-based learning in a supportive, nurturing environment.
 
Experience has taught us that if children already love to learn and have a foundation of essential motor, life and social skills, they are less likely to get distracted and fall behind academically later on.
 
‘Big’ school assumes certain skills and knowledge – things like how to use scissors properly, correct pencil grip and how to sit quietly and use behavior appropriate to the activity. Our Happy Healthy Learners master these basics with us so they can focus on the bigger issues when they start school.
 
While in our care, Sesame Lane’s Educators guide, teach and encourage kindergarten pupils as they develop a love of learning, socialise and acquire useful life skills.
 
What will my child learn at Sesame Lane Kindergarten?
There are seven core competencies our Educators focus on. Over the course of the program, children learn to:
  1. use language to communicate ideas, feelings and needs
  2. make friends and cooperate with other children
  3. become more independent and confident in their abilities
  4. develop self-discipline
  5. creatively express ideas and feelings through art, dance and dramatic play
  6. identify, explore and solve problems
  7. develop reading, writing and numeracy skills.
*A minimum of 3 days per week is recommended for children to get the most out of the program and be fully prepared for school.
