Educational & Development Programs
Every child is born full of creativity. Nurturing it is one of the most important things childhood educators do. Creativity helps your child to become a better communicator and problem solver. It prepares them to thrive in today’s world — and to shape tomorrow’s.
Woodlands Education, Development, and Curriculum 4 to 5 Year Old Kindergarten
At Woodlands, we believe access to a full-time Kindergarten Program in the years proceeding school provides children with the best opportunities to thrive. At Woodlands, we provide high-quality Kindergarten programs that are specifically designed and delivered to ensure that children are academically and emotionally ready for their transition to Primary School. Our Bachelor Qualified Teachers and passionate Educators are dedicated to the development of the whole child through allowing time for a focused indoor curriculum and a focused outdoor curriculum where children discover and learn new skills in all aspects of their development.
Woodlands value the importance of meaningful partnerships between Families and Teachers. We recognise that this requires continuous collaboration. Upon your child’s first day, their Teacher will spend time getting to know you and your Preschooler. We will complete a personal profile about your child, including any dietary requirements, interests, dislikes, and events that are important to your family. This ensures that your child’s transition into care and education at Woodlands is positive and familiar.
Woodlands 4-Year-Old Kindergarten classrooms are thoughtfully designed to be stimulating and challenging for children as they prepare for primary school. Our experienced Early Childhood Teachers design and implement engaging, child-centered environments and experiences that embrace the individuality of each child by extending skills without limits to ensure that your child has every opportunity to reach their full potential and develop their physical, emotional, social, and cognitive skills before they begin Primary School.
At Woodlands, we truly care about the development of your child, which is why our kindergarten program runs, 8 hours a day, 5 days a week with Bachelor Qualified Teachers and qualified additional educators.
Furthermore, our Kindergarten Program offers a wide range of extra programs to actively involve children in meaningful learning experiences, including phonics, numeracy, physical activity, music and movement, creative programs, and excursions. Woodlands has made connections with local schools to support the transition to school process and towards the end of the year closely mimics the routine of a school day.
Woodlands Kindergarten sets children up for a bright future, supporting health and wellbeing, developing strong social skills, scaffolding a love of learning, and inspiring independent and confident learners who are ready for school. Woodlands achieves this by setting up learning spaces in ways that;

Woodlands Child Summative Assessments.
The Summative Assessment is completed, through planning to support further learning. This can be identified when there are gaps of information in relation to a particular learning outcome enabling teachers to look for further examples and which learning outcomes to highlight and focus on during planning in the future.
The Woodlands Summative Assessment builds a picture of your child’s progress over time, through
the evidence collected. The Victorian Early Learning Framework and communication with parents provides key reference points in which your child’s progress can be identified and documented and shows an overall picture of your child’s learning journey.
Woodlands is a Distinguished Early Childhood School and Kindergarten Recognised by the Federal and State Australian Governments.
