Preparing For School
Run by a qualified early learning childhood educator, the Preschool program (‘Mibunn Room’) at Creative Kids Childcare Centre on the Gold Coast is all about promoting school readiness! Further finetuning the skills and knowledge acquired in the Kindergarten Room, our priority is to develop literacy, numeracy, and social-emotional skills to a level where Prep transition will be as seamless as possible. We teach them to identify and recognize letters and how to write their name, and our Preschool Maths Program creates a solid base for Prep level mathematics.
What Else Do We Provide?
We provide a special Creative Kids Educare Centre shirt to promote a feeling of ‘community’ amongst the kids, and so that they are familiar with wearing a uniform. Towards the end of the preschool year, we also invite families to pack a lunchbox so that your little ones know how to portion their food for the day, open packets etc.
There are fortnightly visits to the extremely popular Biggera Waters Primary School which is just up the road! The class is treated to a library visit, a valuable exercise not only to help cultivate a love for reading, but to also familiarise them with a school environment. There are also information evenings with the school, giving parents the opportunity to ask questions and clarify what is expected in Prep.
Play-Based Learning & Open Communication
As with all of our programs, the preschool program offers a play-based learning environment. There is structure to help instill the importance of routine, but activities are ‘child-initiated’ to ensure the learning experience we are providing is tailored to their individual needs. We also strongly value the input of our families and always encourage your feedback and ideas.
How Many Days Do I Enrol My Preschooler?
To maintain consistency and promote adaptability, we recommend enrolling your child into Creative Kids for a minimum of 3 days at preschool age. Any less than this can impact how they settle into their surrounds and how quickly they acclimatise to childcare life. Enrolling them for a minimum of 3 days will also help them transition into school hours the following year.
