A Great Beginning

Kindergarten

not-for-profit Kindergarten

PARENT INFORMATION

Our Kindergarten opened on Wednesday 25th January, 2017.  The not-for-profit Kindergarten operates from 8:45am to 2:45pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays during school terms.

 

We aim to provide the highest quality care, education and endeavour to partner closely with parents in the learning journey. We follow the Early Years Framework (Belonging, Being, Becoming) which has a strong emphasis on play-based learning, and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines, which enriches students’ learning throughout the year, and our Education, Curriculum and Learning Policy. The QKLG will prepare the children for Prep. All Educators at our Service are trained and experienced in areas of early education and care.

 

The class is restricted to no more than 22 children. For 2023 enrolment, children will need to turn four years of age by 30th June 2023.

Sustainability

Sustainability at Noosa Christian College looks like:

  • Recycle, Reuse, Reduce
  • Categorising our rubbish – General rubbish, recycling and food scraps for worms and chickens
  • Food scraps from our worm farm converted into worm juice as nutrients for our plants
  • Scraps for the chickens provide us with delicious fresh eggs for our school community to purchase
  • Using paper and grocery boxes at the collage area
  • Using limited water in the sandpit
  • Using rainwater from our tanks for water play and gardening
  • Save water with our dual flush
  • Intentional teaching and supervision of handwashing using minimal water
  • Encouraging wrapper free lunch boxes
  • Reduce the number of paper towels used
  • Turn the lights off when we are away from the classroom

The Early Years Learning Framework strongly recommends that sustainability be ’embedded in all daily routine and practices’ within early childhood settings and that early childhood educators need to discuss with children that all ‘living things are interconnected’.
