The Tiny Tartan Kindergarten
Established within the grounds of the Primary Campus, The Tiny Tartan Kindergarten offers our youngest students a safe, secure and supportive learning environment of discovery and personal development. Being part of The Springfield Anglican College’s wider school community, the Kindergarten offers the children an opportunity to develop an understanding of the culture and experience of school as they become part of the wider College community.
The Kindergarten students also benefit from the experience of the College specialist teachers, attending lessons in Library, Music, Mandarin Chinese and Perceptual Motor Program. They also attend learning sessions in the ‘Fab Lab’, Makerspace classroom in the Resource Centre. The whole school team approach enables the children to develop supportive relationships with key staff members and become familiar and comfortable in the larger school environment. Our Kindergarten students transition smoothly into the College’s Prep program and continue their educational journey with their new found friends all the way through to the completion of Year 12.
The experienced early childhood educators recognize that learning is a lifelong journey and that Kindergarten is the foundational stepping stone. They understand that every child is an active and engaged learner and carefully shape each learning experience through a combination of independent play opportunities, valuable teachable moments and specialist lessons. Through a shared vision of providing the highest quality kindergarten program, the students are provided learning opportunities to grow in confidence, independence, and develop a sense of self-identity. Understanding that parents are a child’s first and most important teacher, the staff build a collaborative and supportive relationship between families, children and the school.
The Early Years Framework provides staff with a structure upon which to build a program that both supports the needs of young learners while enhancing and supporting their social and emotional development. Striving for excellence at all times is reflected through the daily interactions of staff with students to provide a safe, caring, supportive environment that focuses on the well-being of each child.
The large, open-planned brightly coloured, well-resourced rooms and outdoor play area provide a safe and stimulating environment for children to learn and explore and enjoy their first year of schooling at The Springfield Anglican College.
Part-time (5-day fortnight) and full-time options are available to parents wishing to enrol their child in the Kindergarten.
The Queensland Kindergarten Early Learning Guidelines, based on the Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF) underpins the learning philosophy.Learn More
