Avenues Group Centres have Government funded Kindergarten programs run by fully Qualified, Registered Kindergarten Teachers across all of our centres.
The curriculum is based on the Kindergarten Learning Guidelines which are derived from the Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF) and embraces the inclusive vision that “all children experience learning that is engaging and builds success for life”.
While the EYLF focuses on children from birth to five years, the Queensland Kindergarten Guidelines are unique in that they aim to specifically enrich children’s learning in the kindergarten year. In Queensland, the kindergarten year is the year before the preparatory year of schooling. Throughout the Kindergarten Year, children’s right to experience the joy of childhood is fundamental and learning is promoted through play, and emergent and planned learning experiences and interactions.
At Avenues we believe that we need to offer the children every opportunity to success and therefore in 2011 we introduced our Literacy Program into the Kindergarten curriculum. We have a strong focus on literacy and numerous skills that engage and challenge the children with many successful outcomes.
