What children learn at mainstream Kindergarten
Kindergarten is a wonderland of painting and story time; of talking and listening; of exploring the world; and of making new friends.
Children begin to build on what they have learned at home. This includes their understanding of language – that language is made up of words, that written words are made up of letters in the alphabet, and that spoken sounds can be written down. They also learn about numbers and shapes, and the many different ways we use maths in our lives every day.
These early lessons help children later with reading, spelling, language and maths skills. Teachers take into account the many different experiences and backgrounds of children in the classroom to make sure the learning program helps each child.
Children learn social skills by playing with other children and sharing equipment. Play allows children to share and take turns while developing coordination and confidence.
All of these experiences are vital to their future learning.
The Education Support Centre offers specialised small Kindergarten and Pre-primary classes for students with diagnosed disabilities. Programs are evidence-based, focusing on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis.
