At East Sunshine Kindergarten we believe Kindergarten is one of the most important years of a child’s life. It is the stepping stone for all future learning.
We offer a high quality educational program that reflect the developmental ideas as a base and offer a balanced approached practice encompassing child development, play based curriculum with influences from nature, science and technology which provides an enriched program for the children to learn in.
Providing such an enriched learning environment promotes learning in all areas of development which encourages the child’s readiness for school and early literacy learning.
