Keen Kittens Kindy Room
Our Kindy Early Years Curriculum is a holistic approach, encompassing a wide range of teaching strategies. Kidz Club employs a four-year university- trained early childhood teacher to implement the framework, offering specialized programs and providing a quality educational environment for preschool children.
We encourage and respect parents input regarding your children’s interests and developmental needs to extend intentional teaching and enhance children’s knowledge. We cater for children from 3.5 to 5 years.
At Kidz Club we have an interactive Smart Board which benefits the children through improved teaching and learning opportunities across the whole curriculum. The integration of this technology in our Kindy Room encourages active learning of Jolly Phonics, problem solving, shapes, colours, numbers, letters and various other topics.
As part of our service we offer a range of activities that help children transition to school. Some of these activities include the Jolly Phonics program, which enables children to learn the 42 sounds of the English Language. This gives children the foundation for reading and writing. To further their literacy skills we do a structured writing lesson which the children enjoy. These lessons focus on pre-writing skills and extend to copying sentences.
Once a month the children do cooking with our cook. They look at a recipe, help measure and mix up the ingredients to create something multicultural.
We offer a French Immersion Program implemented by our French Teacher. For 2 hours every morning, they sing songs, count to 20, learn the colours, the days of the week and other various words and phrases.
The curriculum also offers “Program Achieve.” Interactive puppets are used for role play scenarios which teach the children about getting along, confidence, organisation, persistence and resilience.
With our show and share program, the children are allocated a day of the week where they need to bring in something to share with the group. This is to promote confidence and a positive self esteem for the children.
There is a weekly topic that the children follow which coincides with the theme for the month. Parents are encouraged to work with their child to help them draw, research or create something for the topic.
