Pre-Kindy is a school readiness program designed for children who will attend school the following year. To be eligible to enrol in Pre-Kindy at Port Macquarie Adventist School, children need to have turned 4yrs old by March 31st in the year they attend.
Our Pre-Kindy classes provide a curriculum-based program for three and four year olds.
We run a program based on the NSW Board of Studies syllabus. Children are exposed to the Early Stage One outcomes that they will be expected to master in Kindergarten, through play-based, hands-on and integrated activities. Our program is designed to bridge the gap between a child’s prior-school experience (e.g. pre-school, long-day care, family day care, at home with parent or carer) and the more formal educational experience of school. It provides a gentle introduction to formal learning experiences by utilizing best practice of early childhood education, such as learning through play and real life experiences.
