Watch them grow
At Star of the Sea Long Day Care and Kindergarten, their aim is to help your child grow and blossom. The early years of education and care are the foundation for every child’s future. They see these years as an opportunity to instil in children a love of learning and self-discovery that will continue to develop through their further education. In this, way they share the aspirations of all families to watch their children grow.
They care for children from six weeks of age and offer a Queensland Government approved kindergarten program for children in the year before prep. Their kindergarten program is taught by a university qualified early childhood teacher and focuses on teaching your child foundational literacy, numeracy and science skills. We offer nutritious, age-specific meals for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea, prepared on site by their cook and approved by Nutrition Australia.
They are conveniently located on the grounds of Star of the Sea Primary School and your child will benefit from their close relationship with the school.
Watch them grow confidently
Your child will benefit from their close relationship with Star of the Sea Primary School becoming comfortable and confident in the school environment before they make their transition to prep. In kindergarten, your child will make regular visits to the school library and attend school events throughout the year including book week and liturgies.
These excursions are practical experiences that build confidence. The children learn how to use the water bubblers, understand what the signs in the school mean, see what a classroom looks like and where the toilets are, find out where mum and dad will drop them off and pick them up each day and generally build their familiarity with the school environment. These excursions are not only great fun for your child but they also allow their teachers to observe the way they respond to a different environment. Their teachers will use these observations to work one-on-one with your child to build their confidence in different ways.
Watch them grow creatively
Children use creativity and curiosity as tools to explore and learn about the world. Their educators provide an environment that captures their imagination and encourages children to express themselves.
Does your child have a dramatic flare? In their dramatic play spaces or ‘home corners’ children can take on a new role every day with their friends by running an ice cream parlour, a doctor’s surgery or a mechanics garage.
Does your child love to paint and draw? Their art resources have been carefully selected to trigger exploration and are stored in movable trolleys so children can take inspiration from different spaces. With leaves, pipe cleaners, playdough and many other resources your child will be able to explore their creativity during indoor and outdoor play every day.
At Star of the Sea Long Day Care + Kindergarten, they are committed to getting to know your child and family so we can create programs which reflect your child’s talents and interests and capture their imagination.
