Our Philosophy

We offer a play-based program and provide a stimulating, responsive and nurturing environment, that acknowledges children as individuals who approach life and learning in different ways.

Kindergarten is a beautiful time in a child's life.

The Vermont Primary School Kindergarten philosophy engages children not only in the learning process, but also in developing the desire to learn, with creativity and hands on experiences.  The children lead the learning through their questions, observations, ideas and curiosity. 

At Vermont Primary School Kindergarten, we create an environment that is safe, fun, inclusive and respectful. The partnerships with parents and the community are a vital component in a child's learning.  

We believe children learn best through meaningful play.  Our play-based, child centred program allows children to learn how to experiment/problem solve, socialise, be active, explore, hypothesize, discover, test their ideas, modify their ideas, apply and communicate their understanding. We provide a foundation of developmentally appropriate experiences, where all children can succeed in a safe and nurturing environment., 

We aim to build confidence in children so that they become enthusiastic participants in their learning.  We recognise children develop their skills at their own pace. Children are valued for who they are.  

Parents are actively involved and valued in our kindergarten.

Throughout the year Parents are invited to “Stay and Play” and encouraged to share their skills and knowledge with the children.

Please contact the Kindergarten to make an appointment to come and see us!
