The provision of an open learning environment + exploratory creative programs enhance each child’s individuality and ability to develop to their full potential.

The Daily Routine

A day at Kindalin is full of new and exciting things, but it also follows a predictable structure so that your child can feel comfortable knowing what to expect next.

The day includes a combination of active and quiet times, opportunities for group and independent learning, adult supported and child initiated exploration, with time spent both in and outdoors.

Meal times, hand washing, toileting and a rest period are also important parts of the daily routine.

Active Learning

We focus on exploratory, investigative learning, project investigations and allowing the children’s own interests to guide the learning experiences.

Across indoor and outdoor environments, we overlay their curiosity across a project structure that incorporates our Five Key Learning Areas and The EYLF.
