4/5 year old registered Kindergarten program:
Our Kinder Program is run from 8.30-5.30 each day by a qualified Kindergarten teacher who has completed their Master of Education through Deakin University.
Our Kindergarten program consists of rich play-based activities and experiences combining literacy, numeracy, STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.
School Readiness is an important element throughout the kinder year. The school environment is very different to an Early Learning Environment.
We believe learning is more than reading, writing and numeracy. Our kinder children are learning about life, friendship, initiative, conflict and problem solving.
Our program is about learning how to learn, how to find out, how to be creative, how to feel good about yourself, how to deal with others respectfully, all school readiness indicators that build a strong foundation in starting school.
The following practice principles guide our practice here at Beaconsfield Children’s Hub.
Partnerships with families.
High expectations for every child.
Respectful relationships and responsive engagement.
Equity and diversity.
Assessment for learning development.
Integrated teaching and learning approaches .
Partnerships with professionals

Mat sessions are held regularly throughout the day where children sing, dance, listen to stories and others speak and share information with the whole group.
Children are encouraged to participate in a variety of group sizes and to interact with lots of different members of the group.
