The Early Learning Community is the first stepping stone in your child’s educational journey, and we believe it is our greatest gift to nurture and flourish your child’s learning journey through their early childhood years in our Kindergarten and Long Day Care program.
Our Kindy program implements the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines (QKLG) and is developed in reference to the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). At the very heart of the Early Years Learning Framework is the view that early childhood is a time when exploring the notions of being, belonging and becoming are essential to the development of identity, cognitive reasoning and wellbeing.
Our experienced team of Early Childhood Educators see our role as an extension of your family and know the importance of working in partnership with families to see each child’s potential fulfilled.
Children in these early years learn through play; it is the work of childhood. Our Kindergarten curriculum encourages hands on learning, giving each child the thrill of self-discovery.
At Hillcrest Christian College Kindy we believe that the foundations laid in the early childhood years are crucial to a child’s development. It is through these foundations children form who they are as individuals. We believe that each child is a unique creation of God and we strive to encourage each child’s spiritual, physical, social and cognitive development to build a strong foundation for successful learning.
A comprehensive and holistic Kindergarten Program is an essential part of each child’s learning journey and their future transition to school. Our Kindergarten curriculum creates the framework around which all of the interactions, activities and experiences, both planned and unplanned occur. This ensures that your child is fully prepared in every way possible to transition effectively to the new set of learning objectives in our school environment.
