Kindergarten & Pre-Primary

3 year old – Pre-Kindergarten

 

Pre-Kindergarten at Esperance Christian School provides children with an excellent introduction into Kindergarten and Pre-Primary, with a play-based program which operates two half days per week. Our teachers and assistants are highly skilled and trained in Early Childhood. They openly enjoy teaching this age group. Teachers in following years have observed that our Pre-Kindy children grasp concepts of literacy and numeracy more readily, and it has helped them adapt to the routines of Kindergarten.

4 year old – Kindergarten​

 

The Kindergarten experience is a continuation of Pre-Kindergarten with quality teaching, where children are introduced to more in-depth academic concepts in a 3 day per week program.

 

Play continues to be a critical way that children of this age learn about many broad and complicated concepts, with a play-based program that weaves an introduction into numeracy and literacy through sensory experiences, and playing with language and numbers.

Pre-Primary

 

Pre-Primary continues the natural progress made in Kindergarten, with a play-based program that becomes more formalised and is a child’s first introduction into the WA curriculum, but with a flow on of the benefits that come from learning styles in Kindergarten.​

“It is a joy for me as Principal when I go into the early learning classrooms to see how our dedicated staff relate to the students as individuals, giving them a wonderful start and preparation for school. I cannot overstate the confidence I have in my staff to care for students at this young age. Children come with a huge bank of knowledge and life experience, and we want to build on that in partnership with parents.”
