Butterflies’ Room

The Butterflies’ Room for 3-5 year olds

This kindy age group with their early childhood teacher and assistant embrace the C&K’s curriculum which embeds the Early Years Learning Framework in its every day program. The children’s interests are recognized and extended. These children in their preparation for school in the coming years, are growing in their independence.

Whether this centres around interests such as dinosaurs, farm animals or the beach, depends on the children’s very important home and cultural experiences which they bring to the centre. Happy experiences where play is very much valued, forms the basis of a child’s day.

Independence begins with looking after their belongings, participating in lots of cooking opportunities, writing their own names, learning to count and recognize numbers to name a few of the developing skills being encouraged . Outdoor activities are just as important as indoor play where gross motor skills and lots of social activities are embedded in everyday experiences.
