Our exceptional kindergarten and preschool program provides every opportunity to prepare your child for a positive start to their schooling years. Here, our educators strike a balance between child-initiated and teacher-led activities.
While still focusing on attentive care and play-based learning, our educators will foster your child’s natural desire to engage with educational programs for life. We deliver a School Readiness program that specialises in allowing your child to slowly adapt to the new school environment socially, emotionally and mentally before they even arrive. This program teaches the children a variety of literacy and numeracy skills, including how to write their names, identification of simple numbers and shapes, recognition skills, such as identifying their school bags, and a range of communications skills, tools and tactics.
Here at A Step Ahead Early Learning Helena Valley we participate in the Lifelong Learning Pen Pal Program with our sister centres Creswick Children's Services and Kids Retreat in Victoria. Our unique Pen Pal program connects children from different centres as they share their experiences and develop their cognitive skills in communication, memory and writing. The Pen Pal Program falls under the Community theme from our broader Healthy Children’s Program.
When the time comes, your child will be ready to spread their wings and fly.
