4 Year Old Kinder Program

4 Year Old Session Times 2020

We are proud to offer two 4 year old kindergarten groups.

Our Possum group runs over two long days each Tuesday and Thursday, while our Koala group, being our bush kinder group, runs for a long day on Monday, Wednesday afternoon and Friday mornings. The bush kinder program runs during term 2 and term 3 only, and takes place at Braeside Park during the Koala Friday morning session. Please click here to find out more about our bush kinder program.

At Elonera, we feel that your child’s four year old kindergarten year should enable your child to blossom and grow in a safe, happy nurturing environment. We believe that children learn through play and through their interactions with their peers and caring adults. We also believe the family is the most important influence in a child’s life and aim to provide a family orientated service where families feel welcomed and included.

The kindergarten program offers a play based curriculum aimed at supporting the development of the ‘whole child’ and which extends and encourages the interests, needs and strengths of individual and groups of children. Our stimulating program provides experiences which extend and encourage the children’s Language, Physical, Cognitive, Social and Emotional, and Creative development.

Through their play and interactions with their peers and adults, the children are encouraged to explore and experiment, plan and problem solve, and make choices. Through these interactions, the children develop self esteem; a respect for others and their ideas; an ability to communicate; a sense of belonging and ability to participate in and feel comfortable in a group situation.

Our 2018 Fees are $525 per term and our 2019 fees are currently under review. Our fees include all excursions and incursions as well as two terms of playball. Each year is different for our excursions and incursions, as we tailor them to the interests of the children.
