Kindergarten

Jahjumbeen child in tree

Promoting positive skills for life

Wesley Mission Queensland provides the Queensland Government approved kindergarten program helping children prepare for school in a play-based environment. Often referred to as ‘preschool’ or ‘kindy’, children  are taught by a qualified early childhood teacher.

Our kindergarten programs are offered at:  

Jahjumbeen sandpit

Five ways children benefit from kindergarten

  • Strengthen literacy and numeracy skills. Our programs are underpinned by both the Queensland Kindergarten Curriculum Guidelines and the Early Years Learning Framework, meaning particular attention is paid to all Key Learning Areas, to STEM and to the development of literacy and numeracy skills.
  • Prepare for school-like environments. Children are encouraged to become critical thinkers and problem solvers, learning the skills necessary to engage for the next years at school and lifelong learning.
  • Develop cognitive skills and higher order thinking. Teachers support children with their language skills by asking thought-provoking questions and introducing new vocabulary during their daily experiences.
  • Foster curiosity. Teachers foster curiosity in children by observing, asking questions and listening to children’s voices, so that programs can be developed around children’s interests
  • Building social and emotional development. An all-important skills to carry across to school and later years. Additionally, children learn social skills and emotional self-control.
