We want children in our three and four-year-old kindergartens in our Early Learning Centres at Kew and Donvale to feel as secure at school as they do at home.
We want the youngest members of our community to begin their schooling by building a solid foundation of confidence, and we work with families to ensure trust, open communication and consistency in approach to the developing child.
Proximity to other sections of the School allows future years of schooling to be anticipated with enthusiasm and provides access to music, art and physical education opportunities that would be beyond the scope of most primary schools. The Llew Evans Library is in constant use for private reading, research and displays of students’ work. The finest children’s literature and up-to-date information technology to aid research are offered in an environment conducive to relaxation and pleasure with comfortable furniture and an abundance of natural light. Staff encourage students to become independent researchers and recreational readers and arrange special events and visits from authors and illustrators that bring literature to life.
Art Studios at both campuses are exceptionally well resourced and allow the learner to experiment with a range of media.
Music in the ELC programs takes in all areas of development – social, physical, emotional, psychological and intellectual. The children make music using their voices and simple percussion instruments, chants, songs, movement games, integrated drama and music, all of which are carefully chosen to suit the children’s educational needs and their developmental stage.
After School Care
Before School and After School care offers a range of activities and is available on a daily, weekly or casual basis.
