Moreland Community Child Care Centres has introduced a specialised three-year-old transition program delivered by a kinder teacher to cater to the specific needs of this age group as they move out of the toddler years and towards kindergarten.
A three-hour dedicated transition session now takes place each Friday at all three centres.
The program allows our three-year-olds to engage in a more structured program and begin to learn as part of a small group. Children who attend on a Friday are automatically included in these sessions and families who would like their children to attend are encouraged to get in touch with the Centre Manager to check availability.
Benefits of a specialised three-year-old program include:
*supporting language, literacy and numeracy skills *exposure to new ideas and concepts
*learning to share: resources, spaces, ideas
*learning to become more independent
*learning to become a confident decision maker
*learning to self-regulate and control their own emotions and behaviour.
For more information or to enquire about availability, please contact Adrienne Smith (Dunstan Reserve) on 9386 6449 or Shelley Delmo (Mitchell St and Tinning St) on 9383 2708.
