Mildura South Kindergarten is proud to now offer extended after kindergarten care to meet the needs of the busy families in our community. Our extended care program offers additional hours of care, after kinder sessions.
BENEFITS OF OUR EXTENDED CARE PROGRAM
The program is run by a fully qualified early childhood educator. The program is a play based, child-initiated curriculum based upon the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) for Australia. We run an indoor-outdoor program for the majority of the day.
The benefit of our extended care program is that your child will be provided with quality childcare by our excellent teachers, while still experiencing the benefits of socializing in a smaller group environment with other kids from your community. The aftercare is based on an enrichment program that extends on the kinder’s creative philosophy. Our educators will also ensure that the children receive some downtime after a busy kinder session.
WHAT WILL MY CHILD DO IN EXTENDED CARE?
The extended care program provides enrichment for your child with a variety of age appropriate activities that are both fun and educationally/developmentally sound. These may include activities such as literacy play involving puppetry and storytelling, gross motor coordination games such as mini obstacle courses, as well as music and movement activities involving singing, dancing and instruments.
