Satsuki

Satsuki Room (Kindergarten Program)

As teachers it’s our responsibility to observe the children in our care to assess their needs, abilities, skills and development.

Qld Kindergarten Learning Guidelines (QKLG) builds on the Early Years Learning Framework. (EYLF) This helps kindergarten teachers to plan and implement a learning program to monitor children’s progress 5 days a week throughout the year.

In the Satsuki room, we get the children ready for the challenge of school. This is achieved by both challenging and extending the children’s abilities. Activities such as pre-writing skills, recognising their name, letters, sounds and numbers, cutting skills, and extending their concentration spans.

The children learn about our Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders to help them understand our Australian Heritage. We experience different cultures though food, music and books as a daily part of our program. Creativity is encouraged though dancing, singing, many different art and craft experiences, carpentry, visitors to the centre and excursions.

Our aim is for your children’s day to be filled with fun and laughter, friends and joy, and for them to come away with the skills they need, to be happy, healthy and confident individuals who are prepared for their first year of school.

A brief overview of each section of our centre from Momo, Ume, Bara, Kiku, Yuri, and Sumire, will give you a little more insight into the individual programming relevant to the age of the children.
