The 3YO kindergarten program can be a child’s first time in a large group environment. For this reason, one of the main focuses of a three year old kindergarten program is the development and nurturing of children’s social skills. The program is very ‘hands on’.

The choices and experiences we provide are developed from our observations of the children in relation to their needs, abilities, their interests and understandings, from events occurring in the world around us, and most importantly information from families.

Children must have turned three years of age on or before April 30 in the year of attendance, to be eligible for the 3YO kindergarten program. Please note due to regulatory staff:child ratios based on age, a child cannot commence the kindergarten program until they have turned three years old and not before.

From 2022, all children attending 3YO kindergarten will transition to 4YO kindergarten the following year. As a result of this it is important for families to carefully consider the best time to enrol their child in 3YO kindergarten as there will not be the option for a child to repeat the 3YO program. Please contact the kindergarten if you would like to discuss this further.
