Overview

The Kindergarten Program

The Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline has been developed from the Queensland Studies Authority and aligns with the Early Years Learning Framework Australia (EYLF). The Kindergarten Learning Guideline aims to specifically enrich children’s learning in the Kindergarten year, as well as provide early education teachers with support and professional practice in a range of contexts.

The guideline describes a set of five learning and development areas that relate to the five broad learning outcomes identified in the EYLF:

  • Children have a strong sense of identity
  • Children are connected with and contribute to their world
  • Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
  • Children are confident and involved learners
  • Children are effective communicators

Inclusive Program

At Catholic Kindergartens, we acknowledge the right children have to experience the joy of childhood and reach their full learning potential in preparation for school. Our Kindergarten program encompasses the inclusive vision that all children experience learning that is engaging and builds success for life in a supportive learning environment.  

Our experienced teachers deliver programs that include essential literacy and numeracy concepts that build solid foundations for successful life-long learning and readiness for school.  A strong focus on the Kindergarten curriculum is also placed on children developing their independence and resilience, building positive relationships with others, promoting their own health and wellbeing and communicating effectively. These programs provide a balance of intentional teaching and child-initiated learning through inquiry-based discovery and purposeful play environments whereby children are given ownership of their learning.
