Programming

Preschool Program

The preschool program is based on the principles of the Early Years Learning Framework.

The Early Years Learning Framework's vision for children's learning is "All children experience learning that is engaging and builds success for life."

Our preschool is inclusive and values diversity and respects all cultures and religions.

Castle Hill Pre-School emphasises developmental play based learning.  We promote communication and language skills and foster social and emotional development.  Our motto "Learning with Laughter" is an underlying thread in our program, as our educators and pre-schoolers explore and investigate the environment together.

Learning needs to be fun and joyous so children love to learn and continue learning.

School Readiness

All year at Castle Hill Pre-School, the 4-5 year old children are developing strategies for the transition to school.  Independence at activities and routines, positive social behaviours with peers and educators, resilience and confidence are encouraged.

Group times facilitate language skills, curiosity for learning and structured group skills.

In Term 4, pre-schoolers "kiss and wave" to their parents/carers at the gate.  We expect that by now, our children are confident and capable of walking in by themselves and unpacking their bags.  In the afternoon they pack their belongings ready for departure.
