LOCAL EXCURSIONS

At Chandler Kindergarten, we take the children out into the community on exciting excursions. These excursions are a great way for the children to have new experiences and learn more about themselves, as well as the world around them.

Our Philosophy

  • At Chandler Kindergarten we believe that all children can be successful learners and the most powerful way young children learn is thorough play.
  • Play is active and interactive and within it children develop relationships, experiment, communicate, imagine, create, role play, problem solve, practice and learn together, as they explore familiar and new experiences around them in a safe environment.
  • We believe it takes parents, educators and a community to optimise a child’s full learning potential.
  • It is important to us that all children at this centre are given the opportunity to develop all the foundations that will enable their further learning and to grow in mind, body and spirit and culture.
  • Our educators are committed to ongoing learning and reflective practice and we encourage all children to be active, engaged learners, inquisitive thinkers and support them as they learn to respect and collaborate with others.
  • Our vision is for the kindergarten to develop stronger connections and partnerships with the wider community, supporting families to feel valued, connected and children achieve success in all areas of their learning.
