Formal Kindergarten

A kindergarten program will help your child develop a love for learning, be better prepared for school and make new friends! At Kath Dickson we believe that kindergarten is not only about being able to read or write, know colours or count.

It is about making sure children have the emotional and social maturity to cope with the structured school environment. We pride ourselves on working with children so they learn in a caring, playful and exploring way while developing the required skills and maturity needed to enter school. We also provide the necessary support for parents to create a positive transition into our Kindergarten program. We are CCB/CCR approved and offer places 4 to 5 years of age.
