Kindergarten is a play-based program for children aged 3.5 – 5 years old. The program is a 5 day fortnight and the daily times are 8:30am – 3:00pm.
We believe that every child is an individual created by God and our Kindergarten program reflects a child-focused, God-centred approach. At Little Shepherd Kindergarten, your child will be cared for in a personal way within the context of a Christian learning environment. Children are the focus of our Kindergarten ministry; we view your child as unique and a special gift from God.
Schooling is a necessary and lengthy stage in a child’s development. It should be enjoyable for the child as he/she is equipped with academic skills, allowed to explore his/her own creativity and begins to become aware of the talents God has given to him/her. Our Kindergarten environment is one way where each child is accepted, cherished and encouraged to accept each other in the same way.
Through these goals below, we aspire to achieve this with your child.
- To provide a safe, secure and nurturing environment, in which children can develop their full potential with the necessary skills to cope with life’s many challenges;
- To promote a child’s development at his/her own pace, encompassing all aspects of their social, emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual development;
- To provide family support through the provision of high-quality care, resources and education; and
- To encourage each child’s ongoing spiritual development by increasing their awareness of God and His plan for mankind.
