Play-based learning involves providing experiences that are interesting to the child in order to foster their desire to learn.
What is meaningful is different for every child, and our kindergarten teachers will spend time learning about your child’s personality and abilities through observing the activities they choose. They then plan further activities and experiences that may also be of interest to them, and reflect on how your child engaged with these activities. This way, they can continue to support a program that aligns with your child’s interests and needs.
Play-based learning also supports spontaneous learning. Children are given the opportunity to talk, to be creative, to solve problems, and to explore many different activities—they may even discover interests you’re not yet aware of.
Because Little Locals’ kindergarten program encompasses a range of important subjects, your child will not only enjoy a well-rounded curriculum, but also the opportunity to discover and pursue their unique interests.
As part of our Kindergarten program, we explore:
- Sustainability and nature play (with bush kindy)
- Cultural awareness and sensitivity
- STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths)
- Extra-curricular activities like Pilates, sport, and music.
