Teaching and Learning
The Kindergarten program has been purposefully designed to cater for the learning and developmental needs of our youngest students.
The Queensland Kindergarten Early Learning Guidelines, based on the Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF) underpins the learning philosophy ‘that all children experience learning that is engaging and builds success for life’. The Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines provides the framework for a learning environment that enables students to experience the joy of childhood, filled with stimulating learning experiences that are promoted through play and planned learning experiences and interactions.
The Kindergarten students are taught by expert and experienced professionals in the field of Early Childhood Education, and attend specialist lessons in Music, Library, Mandarin Chinese and the Perceptual Motor Program (PMP). They also have access to the Computer Lab and have available to them iPads and Interactive Whiteboards where they can begin to learn the early skills of computer literacy.
Focusing on the developmental needs and learning styles of children, Kindergarten students develop their social, emotional, intellectual and physical growth in an environment where they are taught early foundation concepts in early Literacy, Numeracy, Science, Music and Art.
The large, open-planned brightly coloured, well-resourced rooms and outdoor play area provide a safe environment for children to learn, explore and enjoy their first year of schooling at The Springfield Anglican College.
