Kindergarten Places

Play-based Learning in Kindergarten

Our Kindergarten provides places for 2 year olds (NOK 2s) and 3-5 year olds (NOK 3-5s). Kindergarten children have use of all of our facilities at our unique outdoor site.

We understand that children learn best through play; play that is self-chosen, meaningful, and unstructured by adults. Through play, children can fully engage with their experiences, becoming wholly consumed in what they are doing. And through intense concentration comes discoveries, answers, questions, and a sense of achievement and purpose.

Our skilled and experienced practitioners facilitate an environment filled with lively discussion, collaboration, social interaction and play. They understand that learning journeys are unique to each child, and children proceed on individual timelines.

Children are given the space and time to question, experiment, and reflect on their ideas as they explore their world.


Kindergarten Adult

Mindful Adults

Through careful observation and authentic assessments, our practitioners develop an awareness of what each child needs, and how each child creates meaning. This is essential if adults are to effectively support a child’s learning journey.

Adults support children’s play by providing resources, and facilitating and sharing in experiences and interactions that challenge and engage children at just the right level.

Adults are careful to leave behind their own agenda when joining children in play; rather, they focus on understanding and supporting the child’s agenda.
