School Readiness program and Transition to school

 Macquarie Child Care Centre has a qualified Early Childhood Teacher (ECT) operating a preschool program in the senior room.  She follows a school readiness program with family input (see Form/Downloads).  The children are provided with lots of activities and experiences  to help them develop their social and emotional, creative, language and literacy skills as well as their problem solving skills as they experiment with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

The centre also provides a transition to school plan in conjunction with the Macquarie Primary School (see Forms and download).  The senior preschool children have the opportunity to go and play on the primary school equipment throughout the week, go to the library for a story and orientation visits to both the Macquarie preschool and kindergarten classes.

Our preschool program from 9.00am to 3.00pm, for 3 to 6 year olds still has vacancies.
