4 Year Old

Program for Four Year Old Group

To develop the Four Year Old Group Program our teacher draws on her knowledge of Early Childhood Development education philosophies and teaching practices.  She has been inspired by many philosophies and theorists such as Reggio Emilia’s curriculum theory, Lev Vygotsky’s Social Development Theory, Jean Piaget’s developmental theory and the Howard Gardner’s theory of Multiple Intelligences.

The program reflects a cross-curricular approach providing experiences related to maths, science, social studies, literacy, the arts (visual art, drama, dance, creative movement) & physical education.

Through the many experiences provided at the kindergarten, the children will develop in all areas, including social and emotional, physical (fine and gross motor), intellectual and language.

The program aims to inspire young minds to develop a love of learning. Children are encouraged to be an active part of their environment and learning experiences through sharing knowledge, their own ideas and interests with each other.

The children’s natural ability to inquire is fostered and children and staff work together in a collaborative team to explore and investigate areas of interest that are meaningful to the children. To extend knowledge and learning, excursions, walks, entertainers and visitors to the kinder are organised throughout the year.

Self esteem and confidence building is a priority of the program. When children have developed positive feelings about themselves and are willing to “have a go”, they are able to learn and develop to the maximum potential.

The teachers take children through the fundamentals of being a member of a group – respecting the rights of others as well as having the confidence to express themselves.
