A Typical Day at Kindy
Upon arrival at kindy, the children go and hang up their bag and find their name on the board. Then, it’s free play with a wide range of activities set up for them to explore. Activities include: playdough, puzzles, threading, family corner, games, library corner, sandpit, playground, garden and many, many, more. No two days are ever the same at Trinity Kindergarten! Mid morning, we call all the children in for our first mat-time. During this mat-time, we have a music and movement focus with musical instruments, finger rhymes, songs and dancing. We then call the roll and children can go and wash their hands, ready for morning tea time.
After morning tea, it’s free play time again, teachers will often change the activities that are on offer to meet the emerging interests of the children. Then it’s tidy up time with everyone pitching in to tidy up the kindergarten. Finally, we have a second mat time with a focus on news-sharing and story telling. Younger children go home after this, while our 4 year olds go to eat their lunch, ready for Rising Stars in the afternoons.
