In the Budgies we support children’s early literacy in a range of ways. Imaginative play gives children the opportunity to create stories, engage in social conversation with peers and become flexible in the way that they use language.
Play is the natural language of children and we provide the time, space and adult guidance for them to develop their language skills in ways that are fun, engaging and motivate children to learn.
As you may know, 3 year old kindergarten programs are not funded by the Government and as a result the fees for this program are slightly higher than those for our 4 year old programs. Isabel Henderson Kindergarten families may be eligible for the Child Care Rebate and Child Care Benefit, if you require, we can provide you with more information about this when you next visit.
The kindergarten runs a holiday program during term breaks. The holiday program differs from our regular curriculum in order to provide children with more relaxed experiences in a smaller group setting. Children enjoy activities special to the holiday program such as cooking, and making new friends with children from different groups.
