Give your child the best start to their education!

The Festive Season is nearly upon us and many of us are winding down for the year. But parents – be warned: Before you know it, the new year will be upon us, and it’ll be “back to school” time!

And if you are a parent of a toddler, then no doubt you’ve heard about “3-year-old kindy”.

The West Australian school system allows children to begin formal schooling at a public or private school the year they turn either 4 or 5, depending upon which half of the year they were born in. Kindergarten is not compulsory, but is recommended for all children.

However, 3-year-old kindy is a program that is not offered at schools, but is run outside of schools such as at community centres and day care centres. 3-year-old kindy is optional of course, but is highly beneficial for a child’s education, and is a fun and exciting start to their school years!

3-year-old kindy is a structured play-based program that teaches children about themselves and their environment. Kids learn social and communication skills; and there is a big emphasis on social development and emotional regulation which helps to prepare children for attendance in 4-year-old programs the following year.

If your child already attends regular day-care, you may think they don’t need 3-year-old kindy as well. But there’s plenty of reasons why your child will thrive by attending 3-year-old kindy!

For a start, attending the program helps “break them in” to school routines and a school environment and allows them to adapt at their own pace.

The programs are designed especially for this age group. Children learn a variety of literacy and numeracy skills, including how to write their names, identification of simple numbers and shapes, recognition skills, such as identifying their school bags, and a range of communications skills, tools and tactics.

And of course the biggest factor: 3-year-old kindy is about having fun learning and making new friends!

If you would like to give your child the best possible start to their schooling, consider enrolling them into 3-year-old kindy in 2020.

Linda and Kristy are two of the most genuine, hard working and lovely people I know. They truly love engaging with children, and have a natural way with them. I cannot wait for their business to open so my boys can enjoy the wonderful atmosphere that I know Kids on Beaufort will provide.

- Bree Dimmock

I’m very much looking forward to this centre opening up! Kristy (one of the owners) was the sole reason I ended up choosing our current daycare (where she was working at the time.) She put my mind at ease and Abigail took to her straight away. I always felt comfortable leaving her with Kristy so […]

Kristy is a fantastic carer. The activities she plans for the kids and effort she puts in is amazing! My baby would cry when he saw her leaving, and it was so nice to know he felt so safe and comfortable with her and put my mum guilt to rest

- Jacinta Graham

I always felt so comfortable with Kristy when my son was in the babies room, so much so that I kept him in there longer so he was still with her! The genuine care and passion Kristy has for children made me feel confident that he was safe when the “mum guilt” kicked in for […]

- Jessica Elizabeth

I have been fortunate enough to have both of my children under the care of Kristy over the last 6 years. Needless to say I was super excited when I found out that Kristy and Linda were opening their own centre. Kristy exudes a natural affection for children and this was evident in the way […]

- Kerry Akhurst

The two owners of Kids on Beaufort previously cared for both my children in before and after school care in their other child care roles. They were always professional, caring and attentive to the kids needs. I will gladly entrust them again with my children’s care in their new business.
