Across Australia, our School Readiness children have been celebrating an exciting milestone and graduating from our kindergarten and preschool programs ready for ‘Big School’.
"Our approach to learning builds on foundational skills and helps our School Readiness children develop vital skills like problem-solving, innovation, collaborating with others, posing questions and testing their ideas," explains Dr Lesley Jones, Senior Advisor Pedagogy and Practice. "These are the skills that we know children need to make a successful transition to primary school."
Our passionate Early Childhood Teachers and Educators are committed to preparing all our children for ‘Big School’, encouraging their growth and development with stimulating activities and experiences.
2020 was a big year for so many reasons. We applaud our Early Childhood Teachers and Educators who worked tirelessly to ensure children enrolled in our Kindergarten and Preschool programs continued their learning and development to be ready for Primary School in 2021.
“Our Lifelong Learning approach builds emotional confidence, social skills, early literacy and physical abilities, readying them to start primary school as capable and curious learners,” explains Theresa-Gai Phillips, Centre Manager at Papilio Coombabah.
“While 2020 had its share of challenges, the resilience and enthusiasm our children showed make us confident that they are ready for what comes next.”
Many of our graduates have been with us since they were babies and toddlers, making the ceremony an emotional time for parents and educators alike. While we are sad to say goodbye to our brilliant graduates, we feel privileged to have shared these vital early learning years with them, helping them foster a love of learning and prepare them for the next stage of their lifelong learning journey.
