3 Year Old Kinder and Enrolment Information 2021
Seabrook Kindergarten offers 3 year old kinder on a Monday and Thursday for children who have turned three or be turning three by the 30 April on the year they wish to commence. Your child cannot begin kinder until they are three years old. The program is a ‘not for profit’ association and therefore not a source of income for the kinder. A one off fee of $380 is payable for 3 year old kinder for 2021.
The program we offer is an introduction to 4 year old kinder. It is a play based program and evolves from children’s individual and group interests as well as intentional teaching activities. The experiences are open ended to allow the children the opportunity to engage at their own developmental level.
We have permanent play spaces (painting, drawing, clay or play dough, puzzles, library, block construction and a dramatic play area). The children are involved in establishing and maintaining class rules and routines while our group times include discussions, Tai Chi, music and movement which allows children to gain confidence, coordination and express opinion and ideas.Our outdoor program develops gross motor skills and allows children to challenge themselves as they explore.
