The Four-Year-Old Kindergarten program is provided for children before they enter Primary School. Children must be 4 or turning 4 years old by the 30th of April to be eligible to access the four-year-old Kindergarten program.  We currently have vacancies for 4 year old kindergarten in 2017.

There are only 16 children enrolled per day, with degree-qualified Early Childhood Kindergarten Teachers working alongside the children.

The environment encourages the children to further develop their fine and gross motor skills, emotional intelligence and social skills through questioning, investigation, documentation and reflection. Our indoor and outdoor environments provide numerous opportunities for children to work individually, or as part of small groups.

Our children’s learning is documented and implemented in line with the Victorian Early Years Learning Framework and the National Early Years Learning Framework. Weekly room updates are sent to all parents, and individual learning stories are provided as the children progress. The Kindergarten program offers a balance of structured content-based and child-initiated learning as well as individual and small group open-ended play experiences.

Our Kindergarten teachers value their shared connections to the children, families, friends and the local community. Throughout the year they help the children develop the necessary skills that will help them enter school. We are proud to say that WCCC children graduate feeling self-confident, eager to investigate, learn and discover new things, as well as being able to develop rewarding and meaningful new relationships with children and educators.
