n Kindergarten we are empowered to explore.

We tap into our innate curiosity coming up with our own unique ideas. We develop our independence and interdependence through play- based learning, working together with others sharing our ideas, thoughts and feelings in kind ways.

We create a sense of belonging and community, developing our responsibility and respect. We love to learn about the world around us growing in our communication, physical, social and emotional skills. We build our knowledge, understanding and skills in a range of areas through intentional teaching and engaging in our rich environment.

Most importantly we have fun and are free to be ourselves.


We feel safe, warm, loved, and special.

The Window

In the Early Years Centre this year, our ongoing Inquiry is titled “The Window”.

The window is the focal point of the Early Years Centre. The children regularly gather to look outside, wave to parents and to take in the busyness of the East Derwent Highway. Kunanyi (Mount Wellington) changes daily and has become an interesting conversation starter. 

Throughout the year and as the seasons change, we will  be continuing to explore and investigate kunanyi and the relationship that Mountain holds with Hobart.
