Kindergarten is a very important year in a child's education as it is often their first introduction to education away from the home.
Our Kindergarten aims to offer children a caring and stimulating environment that is welcoming and fun. Our Kindergarten offers children an Enchanted Garden, state of the nature play area complete with a water pump, sandpits, forts, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, vegetable patches and so much more. All of this assists with children's cognitive development, emotional development, learning ability, health and fitness.
They go a long way towards encouraging students' curiosity and creativity; giving them the best learning experiences while instilling in them a love of learning. This not only prepares them for their next year of school but also plants the seed for fostering positives attitudes towards lifelong learning. At Rossmoyne Kindy, we aim to set values relating to a sense of community, sharing and environmental responsibility.
Community Kindergartens offer an alternative to on-site state school based Kindergartens. Community Kindergartens operate from purpose built facilities and playgrounds that are usually leased from local government. Our Kindergarten is leased from the City of Canning.
Teachers are appointed by the Department of Education and the Kindergartens are managed by parent committees in co-operation with teachers and the local community. Being a Community Kindergarten means we rely on Community Support and funding to operate including Grants, Donations and Volunteers.
