Kindergarten Preparatory Program

Carinya provides an outstanding Kindergarten Preparatory Program. The Program is play based and introduces children to early learning skills and activities, in a secure and stimulating real school environment. Children are given opportunities to become inquisitive, confident learners, in a warm and caring environment.

With a focus upon school readiness, the program runs during school hours and days only during school term weeks. Children can be enrolled for up to 5 days a week, Monday-Friday. Parents are also able to take advantage of make up days (for absenses other than sickness) and book their children in for casual days.

Children must turn 3 years old by the 30th April the year they are to commence in the Gumnut Readiness Program and 4 years old by the 30th April the year they are to commence in the Kindergarten Preparatory program. Please note that it is a requirement of the program that children must be toilet trained prior to commencement.

Students also share in a Kindergym program, taught by an instructor qualified by Gymnastics Australia. Parents can be involved in the presentation of this program which aims at enhancing a child's physical development and intellectual readiness, as well as personal resilience and confidence.

Fees

Children enrolled in the Kindergarten Readiness Program are assumed to continue their enrolment for the entire year for the same number of days each school week. The Annual Fee charged to parents is calculated on this basis at a rate of $30 per day.
