About the centre

Our Kindergarten has been designed to be an integral part of Family Day Care South Cairns Scheme as children have the possibility of attending an approved kindy program while staying within their Family Day Care environment.

Children who do not attend Family Day Care South Scheme are welcome to attend our Kindergarten Program.

Family Day Care South Cairns Community Kindergarten follows the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline and is governed by The Gowrie.

The Kindergarten must abide by Queensland Government guidelines and is only available to children who are in the year before Prep (i.e. Children who are 4 years by 30th June in the year they start Kindergarten) can attend the approved program.

 

 

 

 

additional information

As the Kindergarten is an approved program under the Queensland Government there are two documents that will be implemented and embedded into practice.  Both these documents relate to the Early Years Learning Framework:

Belonging, Being and Becoming; and the
Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline

Belonging, Being and Becoming are three simple words that sum up what we will be doing – every child attending kindergarten will experience a genuine sense of belonging, they will have time and space to be themselves and be supported in who they are becoming.

The Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline specifically focuses on enriching children’s learning in the kindergarten year.  The Guideline provides advice to support kindergarten teachers to strengthen the children’s sense of belonging, being and becoming.  The Guideline has five learning and development areas that relate to the five broad learning outcomes in the Early Years Learning Framework, which are as follows:

Children have a strong sense of identity
Children are connected with and contribute to their world
Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
Children are confident and involved learners
Children are effective communicators
The children will learn to ask questions and seek their own answers and finally to become responsible for their own learning.  The children are allowed to learn at their own pace with the freedom to choose a task and complete it to their own satisfaction.  We provide the opportunity for children to experience limits and interact with concerned adults who constantly extend on children’s learning respecting them as developing individuals.
