Kindergarten & School Readiness (3-5 years)

Our exceptional preschool program provides every opportunity to prepare your child for a positive start to their schooling years. Here, our educators strike a balance between child-initiated and teacher-led activities. Our 3 to 4 year-old room is designed to inspire children’s intrinsic motivation in learning through various stimulation and investigation. Our funded 4 year-old Kindergarten program is delivered by a qualified Kindergarten Teacher who implements our School Readiness Program that specialises in allowing your child to slowly adapt to the new school environment socially, emotionally and mentally.

While still focusing on attentive care and play-based learning, our educators will foster your child’s natural desire to engage with educational programs for life. Our curriculum teaches the children a variety of literacy and numeracy skills, including their names, identification of simple numbers and shapes, recognition skills, and a range of communications skills, tools and tactics.


Cooking Lessons

Our in-house chef provides an exciting cooking class once a month for the children. During the cooking class the chef will teach the children healthy eating and how to safely use kitchen utensils. The monthly class is a fun activity that lets your child experience many essential skills, such as reading, following directions and measuring which helps develop fine motor skills, hand eye coordination and early concepts of math and science.
