The Educators working in this room are Lynne Hadley (teacher) and Gerry Schepemaker (assistant). Between them they have many years experience working in the kindergarten environment.
Our program includes activities planned around the children’s interests, as well as community activities. As educators we also challenge children through worthwhile experiences and interactions that are intentional and knowledge building.
We run an indoor/outdoor program which allows the children choices on where they want to play, which activities they want to choose and how long they want to play there.
Family participation is welcomed through helping with duty roster, joining in excursions or bringing individual talents that can be incorporated into the program such as cooking, music or craft.
As Educators we build relationships with the children in our care as well as with their families. We want kindergarten to be a place to play, learn and have fun. Through active participation and engagement in our curriculum the children are respected and emotionally supported to reach their learning potential.
