At St Mary’s our Early Childhood Programs run for our Pre-Kindy (3 year olds), Kindy and Pre-Primary. The programs are planned in a way which provides experiences and activities that are developmentally appropriate for the students’ ages. These programs value and take a play-based approach, whereby young children learn through hands-on experiences and their natural curiosity.
Activities are designed to take into account the individual needs of each child. As the timetable is flexible, there is more time for children to initiate their own learning and solve problems at their own pace.
The programs value the continuing involvement of parents and acknowledges the valuable part which parents play in their child’s education.
