Activities

Our group time consists of music, movement skills, games, perceptual and language development. We also have early morning outdoor gym each week, where the children are exposed to the variety of outdoor equipment. All the children also enjoy the expertise of a music instructor (Junior Jive) and playball coaches. These are incorporated on a weekly basis in our curriculum.

Baking takes place every second week where the children delight in measuring and stirring to produce “yummy goodies” to eat.

Weekly visits to our Nature Reserve is a highlight where the children explore nature, catch tadpoles and crabs, have stories.

Creative Work

Our approach at Kildare is to nurture the creativity that is inherent in each child and for the child to work independently. We discourage the use of stencils or models but rather expose the child to a wide variety of art experiences. Children are encouraged to look, feel, experience and create. The process is more important than the end product.

Outdoor Play

Gross motor ability is a critical life skill. Motor skills are actions that involve the movement of muscles in the body. Kildare’s extensive garden area provides the children to run, play soccer, cricket, enjoy a bike track, as well as developing their balancing and large motor skills on the various exciting jungle gyms. The sandpit area is well designed and allows for outdoor play even on a rainy day. We believe children learn through play.

Additional Learning Experiences

We invite visitors to import their knowledge in a practical and exciting manner which include various discussions shown and demonstrations.
