Senior Kindy

At Bay Explorers Early Learning, we provide a benchmark quality environment for children aged from 3 to 4 years in the Senior Kindy classroom. We meet the needs of each individual child within tailored indoor and outdoor spaces that present fresh experiences, utilising targeted programming and resources in order to develop the children's social skills in fun, safe and secure surroundings.

Children of this age are starting to understand social skills such as sharing and being kind. They often enjoy being with other children and tend to spend more time playing together. Our qualified Educators will model communication strategies to support children in initiating interactions and joining in play and social experiences in ways that sustain positive relationships with other children. Our learning environment is intentionally designed to promote small group interactions and play experiences.

Children in our classroom show enthusiasm for participating in physical play and negotiating play spaces. Our Educators provide a range of both active and restful experiences throughout the day and support children to make confident decisions in learning opportunities and participation. Our children are empowered to follow and extend their own interests with enthusiasm and concentration. Educators at Bay Explorers will listen intently to children’s ideas and discuss with them how these ideas might be developed and explored. Opportunities are provided for children to revisit their ideas regularly and extend their thinking.

Play is the vehicle through which children learn, develop and acquire skills and knowledge. Our Senior Kindy children are given unlimited opportunities to engage in play in all of its forms with freedom to explore and experiment, with no limitations on children’s learning opportunities. A variety of experiences and activities will ensure that your child will flourish, exercising their full potential in all areas whist attending the Bay Explorers Senior Kindy classroom.

Educators in our Senior Kindy environment liaise frequently with our Kindergarten team, ensuring that planned (and incidental) learning opportunties provide a strong foundation for a successful transition into Kindy.  At Bay Explorers all of our younger learning environments are callibrated to ensure the children are fully prepared and capable of maximising their Kinderarten year.  This focus is both social emotional and in terms of academic readiness.  It is with great confidence that our Senior Kindy children look forward to their Bay Explorers Kindergarten year.
