As Educators, part of our role is to support children in making appropriate choices and encourage them to express and explore their knowledge and thoughts.

We believe in promoting play as the emphasis through a process of exploring, problem solving, social interaction, role play, communicating and most importantly, listening to children which enables them to enhance skills in areas such as their language, self-help, cognitive, social interaction and fine/gross motor skills.

Early Years Learning Framework

Kinder Cottage embraces the Being, Belonging and Becoming Principals of the Early Years Learning Framework (ELYF) and the National Quality Framework (NQF). Our centre will continue to reflect, improve and evolve in relation to our Quality Improvement Plan, as needed based on feedback from the Educators, Families and Community. We believe in fostering sustainable practices within our centre, involving the children in this learning.

Kindergarten Program

Our Kindergarten Program is based on the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines which are prescribed by the Queensland Government and Queensland Studies Authority. This program supports children’s learning in a variety of ways.

The target age group for the Kindergarten Program is children who turn four years old by 30 June in the year and attend a minimum of two days per week.
