Our Birkdale Pre-Kindy rooms provide a preschool environment that is welcoming, relaxed, engaging and fun. Pre-Kindy is an age of wonder and delight. It is a time when young children really start to become more independent and self-confident. They begin to learn how to take care of themselves, and develop longer attention spans. They delight in achievement and begin to solve problems and recognise numbers and letters. As relationships are developed with other children, their social and emotional skills also begin to blossom.
Our educators in our Birkdale Pre-Kindy rooms strive to provide a range of stimulating opportunities to take advantage of this exciting stage of young children’s development. The day is planned around activities that nurture creativity and promote linguistic and numeric skills through a careful balance of teacher facilitated activities and play with peers. From arts and crafts to music, stories and poems, to reading and counting, children are introduced to the basic skills they need to prepare them for their schooling years.
At Perfect Start Birkdale Centres, we facilitate self-exploration by encouraging our Pre-Kindy children to use their senses and motor skills. Children of this age are highly curious about unfamiliar objects, events and phenomena. They can solve simple problems with the “trial and error” method and will practice an activity many times to master it. Children this age also pretend more during play, using familiar objects and situations to process their daily experiences.
Through our Birkdale Pre-Kindy preschool programs, children are given many great opportunities to learn to speak with confidence, take turns, share and respect others. As relationships are developed with other children, their social and emotional skills also begin to blossom. With the guidance and support of our passionate educators the children are assisted in developing relationships skills by building trust, acceptance and forgiveness. These vital habits of heart are also vital in developing the child’s self-esteem and self-worth.
