The Program and its Philosophy.
Our Four Year Old program runs over three consecutive days (Wednesday - Friday 9.15am - 4.00pm) and is taught by Baiba Thompson, a highly experienced Kindergarten teacher with over 25 years experience. She is passionate, committed and has a wealth of knowledge.
St. John’s is a special place where we help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive learners. The activities we plan, the way we organise the environment and plan our daily routines, are all designed to promote their self esteem and foster a love of learning.
Our learning environment is organised as a welcoming place for exploration and discovery,
as well as for communication and collaboration.
Our program incorporates both intentional teaching and the extension of ideas emerging from the children’s interests. A major component our program is the development
of respect for ourselves and others, for our environment, for diversity and for the cultural backgrounds of our children.
