3 Year Old Kinder

3 year old kinder (Pre-kinder) is a fundamental step in your child’s introduction to their educational journey. It provides an extra year for children to develop social and emotional skills to play and cooperate with others, encourage language development and communication skills, express their creativity, develop confidence and curiosity, and find the fun in learning.

At Geelong West Kindergarten, we offer small Pre-kinder classes of either 6 or 7 hours per week. All classes are run over two days offering consistency and continuity of learning. The short session times of 3 or 3.5 hours promote optimal learning and a reduction in separation anxiety in some children. In 2022, we will also have the option of 2 x 2.5 hours and the optional extra of 2.5 hours on a Friday which can be added to any of the other groups.

Our teachers are university trained and co-educators have at least a Diploma of Children’s Services and considerable experience.

Our class structure will allow your child to interact with the same group of children each session. Thus enhancing their sense of belonging and providing a greater opportunity to form and build relationships.
