Why Kindergarten Matters!

At Dragonfly’s Early Learning Centre in Coolum Beach, we provide a Government-Approved Kindergarten Program that follows the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines to prepare children for Prep. Here are three reasons why we believe enrolling your child in a Kindergarten program is so important:

School Readiness

Starting school is an exciting milestone, but it can be a stressful time for parents who are tasked with preparing their children for a big change. A lack of school readiness can have a lasting impact on children, so parents and early childhood educators need to work together to equip them with the skills and ability to succeed.

A Government-Approved Kindergarten Program is designed to prepare children to enter Prep confidently. Early learning is a fun experience for children, and by getting them into the routine early, you can ensure that they handle the transition to school hours easily.

Social and Emotional Intelligence

Learning to manage their emotions and make social connections are skills that children will need for school and, ultimately, life. Like all things, practice makes perfect. Social and emotional abilities are developed by spending time with other children in the same age group.

A Kindergarten program will provide an opportunity for your child to make friends, share their ideas, and even experience some conflict – which can be very beneficial. Conflict allows children to learn to respect others, express themselves, and learn how to manage their emotions.

Making Learning Fun and Accessible

Building a foundational knowledge for later life is important, but a high-stress, strict environment is not conducive to early learning. Early learning is all about learning through play, having fun, and picking up skills at a comfortable pace.

Our Kindergarten educators develop play-based activities with learning opportunities embedded so that children are able to learn while having fun. At Dragonfly’s, we believe in exploring children’s natural interests and letting them lead the way so that learning occurs organically.

The Dragonfly’s Kindergarten program is a Government-Approved Kindergarten Program delivered by a fully-qualified teacher.
