A typical daily learning routine
We believe in uninterrupted, imaginative and creative play. This means our mornings and afternoons at kindergarten are unstructured and unhurried.
This encourages imaginative and inventive thinkers, and through play children are learning to develop key life skills such as problem solving, taking the initiative, learning to persist with a task and getting along with others.
- When children arrive at kindergarten they are free to choose what they would like to do. Child led play.
- We have a rolling morning tea. This means that the fruit bowl is available all morning from 9 am to 11.30 am.
- We come together at 12.15pm to have story time. This ritual includes mindfulness, encouraging the children to calm their bodies down before we transition to lunchtime or home. Story time is a ritual that brings a rhythm to the day for our children. It lets some children know we will soon be dining and it lets others know that soon they will be heading home.
- We sit for 30 min at lunch, afterwards children have a lavender facecloth, a ritual that guides the end of lunchtime, and lets children know that the afternoon has begun.
- At the end of the day children gather inside for home time and a story from 3pm onwards.
