Enrolling your child in a quality three and four-year-old kindergarten program is a proven way to enhance their early development. Pre-School works alongside home-based learning, equipping children with the skills and confidence they need in preparation for school.
At Rangeview Pre-School we understand that all children are unique and our pre-school programs are designed to give each child the best start to their educational journey.
Rangeview Pre-School has two 4 Year Old classes: Banksia & Waratah. Each class is structured around 27 children and the programs run for 15 hours per week, split over 3 sessions.
Our 4 Year Old Program reflects the Government’s National Early Years Learning Framework.
Our high quality 4 Year Old programs are tailored around play-based activities designed to enhance learning and develop your child’s physical, emotional, intellectual and social skills.
In our 4-year-old program, your child’s growing independence will be fostered with developmentally appropriate activities and experiences, and their confidence and self-esteem will be encouraged through experimentation, trial and error, watching, listening and participating in a supportive and safe environment.
Along with talented and qualified educators, Rangeview Pre-School has wonderful facilities and engaging indoor and outdoor learning environments to support your child’s learning and allow them to explore.
The 4 Year Old program incorporates numerous learning activities including cooking, art, dance, drama, movement, maths, science, social studies, music, language, pre-reading and writing and is based around the following principles:
- Stimulating developmentally appropriate activities
- Perceptual motor program
- Variety of excursions and incursions to the Pre-School
- Providing a wide range of equipment
- Caring and enthusiastic staff
- Interaction and transition programs with local primary schools
- Numerous family social occasions
All families with a child enrolled in a funded kindergarten program are eligible for Free Kindergarten, this includes both 3 and 4-year-old kindergarten programs.
