C&K Gayn­dah Com­mu­nity Kinder­garten is ex­cited to an­nounce en­rol­ments have opened for 2014.

Di­rec­tor Marni Telford said this means fam­i­lies can lock in a place now for their child to get the best start to their ed­u­ca­tion.

Marni, who is a univer­sity de­gree qual­i­fied teacher, runs the kinder­garten pro­gram which op­er­ates on a five-day a fort­night ba­sis.

“Here at C&K Gayn­dah we run a high-qual­ity kinder­garten pro­gram that is child-cen­tred,” Mrs Telford said.

“We have an amaz­ing out­door space where the chil­dren love to play and we run a full day in­door/out­door pro­gram al­low­ing the chil­dren to make choices about where they want to play.

“I en­cour­age fam­i­lies to en­rol now to en­sure their child can take part in the C&K ex­pe­ri­ence.

“We use C&K Build­ing wa­ter­falls to cre­ate a liv­ing and learn­ing com­mu­nity that val­ues your child as a com­pe­tent and ca­pa­ble learner and wel­comes par­ents as a part­ner in their learn­ing.

“Build­ing wa­ter­falls play-based cur­ricu­lum al­lows your child to ex­pe­ri­ence many op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­plore, solve prob­lems, de­velop friend­ships, imag­ine, use their cre­ativ­ity and ex­tend their ca­pa­bil­i­ties in lan­guage, lit­er­acy and nu­mer­acy,” Mrs Telford said.

“Cul­tur­ally sen­si­tive and inclusive prac­tices will en­sure your child’s tal­ents and abil­i­ties are de­vel­oped to the fullest.”

The C&K Build­ing wa­ter­falls early child­hood cur­ricu­lum is the only govern­ment ap­proved early child­hood cur­ricu­lum in Aus­tralia and meets the Early Years Learn­ing Frame­work.
