Welcome to Kindergarten at Swan Christian College
At Swan Christian College we believe that learning should be fun. We value children as exploratory learners and aim to start them on a life-long adventure in learning.
Our Kindergarten programs build students' understanding and knowledge through an educational philosophy that values exploratory and adventurous learning. Along with a Three-Day Kindy program, we also offer Five-Day Kindy.
Research shows that the first five years of a child’s life are a valuable time. Enrolling your child in a Kindy program to ease them into school during these years can help develop their social skills, foster creativity and imagination.
In Kindy, students are given the opportunity to engage in everyday learning adventures. This engagement is very important to us, as we believe that mindful engagement results in a better learning experience for the student.
In using the national Early Years Learning Framework, we aim to help students to build a strong identity and connect with the world around them. We also focus on the development of a strong sense of wellbeing, confidence in learning and effective communication. The early years are a time to:
- Belong - to a family, culture, community
- Be - play, have fun, try new things and enjoy
- Become - the best they can be, learning all they can.
The emphasis is on social skill building and confidence to begin the literacy and numeracy journey of College life.
Three-Day or Five-Day Kindy
For some children and families, transitioning from time spent at home or day care to schooling life can be exciting. For others, this transition period can also be a little daunting. Our Kindy program aims to make this transition as smooth and easy as possible, by gently introducing your child to formal education through Three-Day or Five-Day school interaction.
As of 2020, families will be able to choose between our Three-Day and our Five-Day Kindergarten program, depending on what's best for your child and individual family situation.
Students in our Kindergarten programs seamlessly transition into Pre-Primary, giving them a great head start on their life-long learning adventure.
Contained fully within the grounds of Swan Christian College, classes for our Kindergarten - Year 6 students are grouped in learning clusters with access to specialist facilities not usually available to primary aged children. With a comprehensive support network, students enjoy an opportunity to thrive and learn through a program that recognises their individual needs and learning styles.
It is the aim of the Junior School to establish firm educational, spiritual and emotional foundations, empowering all students to become adventurous lifelong learners.
At Swan Christian College, we care about the wellbeing of your child, including their physical, emotional, social, mental and spiritual needs.
We partner with our parents in the education of their children, from Kindergarten to Year 12, providing each child with the opportunity to achieve the best they can, and sometimes even better than they thought they ever would, regardless of their pathway.
