Kindergarten Philosophy Welcome to our kindergarten, a place for you to wonder, to question, to play and to learn. Here you are safe and can be yourself amongst friends. Know that you will find spaces – inside and out – that are warm, wondrous and exciting. The teachers will challenge you, and support you to participate and have fun. They will listen to your ideas and take them seriously, then carefully think about how to help you take them further. Here, you will begin to take your place in a global community, preparing for school, learning skills for life, making sense of the world. We will explore with you the wonders of the natural world, planting the seeds for a sustainable future. We welcome your family and invite them to share with us your culture, language, knowledge and interests. Remember, we are all on this learning journey together, and we will support you every step of the way.
