The four year old program is managed by an elected Committee of Management and is subsidised by the government. The program is currently planned for and implemented by Laura and Tamara, qualified Early Childhood teachers as well as our Diploma Qualified educators Janine and Sharyn. The sessions include lots of fun play-based activities, which have been carefully planned to fulfill the aims of the program. The program also caters for the interests and developmental needs of the children, building their skills, individually and as a group. The sessions include group times, stories, music, movement, drama and discussion times.
Our four year old group children are provided with 15 contact hours per week spread over three days. We have two four year old groups, with a maximum of 22 children in each. These groups are available to children in the year before they attend school.
