our teaching program

Teaching Style

Learning at Pine Rivers Kindy is promoted through play, both emergent and planned learning experiences and interactions. Research suggests that play is the best exercise for the brain as it provides the perfect stimulus needed for brain development. Play is the most effective way for children to discover and learn about the world around them.

To ensure we nurture and develop our future generation of thinkers, play at Pine Rivers Kindy is an essential component of our quality Early Childhood Educational experience. Staff at Pine Rivers Kindy utilise The Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline within the kindergarten program.

The guideline is based on the Early Years Learning Framework for Australia, and embraces the inclusive vision that, “All children experience learning that is engaging and builds success for life”. This reflects current Early Childhood Educational practices, and caters for each child’s interests as well as introducing new concepts and activities.

Learning Focus

Throughout the day at Pine Rivers Kindy, opportunities to strengthen a child’s sense of Belonging, Being and Becoming will be available as each discovers and develops:

  • Different ways of communicating and expressing themselves through language, art, dramatic play, music and dance

  • Strategies for problem solving and decision making
  • Coordination, agility and fine motor skills
  • Creative thinking and;
  • Responsibility and independence
