School Readiness

Children aged 3-5 years

The Lifelong Learning Curriculum offers preschool children aged 3 to 5 years the very best start before they begin Primary School. The School Readiness program is supported by inquiry-based project work with children, and our literacy and numeracy program.

Our university qualified teachers and experienced educators are passionate about stimulating young minds, building confidence, encouraging resilience and promoting a positive self-image for all children. These elements support children’s transition to school, preparing them for a positive start in life.

We know that all children are capable of realising their full potential if they are in the right environment. That is why we use project-based learning, appropriate technology and enrichment programs to spark the best experiences.

Our School Readiness program includes:

  • Big Thinkers STEM: Available for preschool children from ages 3 and up, this intentional teaching program explores science, technology, engineering and mathematical concepts in the world around us, in fun and engaging ways, led by qualified teachers and educators.
  • Aussie Wildlife Champions: A program developing understanding and a love of wildlife and the principals of conservation, along with the awareness of the impact and difference that children can make on the world they are growing up in.
  • Positive Living Skills: Emotional resilience and social connectivity provide children with the keys to successful relationships with their friends and future teachers.

What Children Learn

Children attending School Readiness classes develop a lifelong love of learning and a natural desire to engage with educational opportunities. Their social and emotional skills are so important during these years, and provide a strong foundation for early literacy and numeracy.

We enrich standard Kindergarten and Preschool classes through our Lifelong Learning Curriculum School Readiness programs including Big Thinkers STEM, Aussie Wildlife Champions and Positive Living Skills.

How Children Learn

Children learn best when they believe that they can. Through a rich combination of play-based and intentional teaching, our preschool programs allow them freedom to explore their interests and ideas, and to contribute to learning and discovery within their classroom of friends, their confidence will grow every day.

Where Children Learn

Our classrooms and learning environments include Lifelong Learning Curriculum zones to encourage children to try new things every day. With both indoor and outdoor learning taking place, children can feel refreshed and comfortable as they develop their understanding of the world around them – and of their own potential.

Outdoor Play Area

Each Kids Academy Early Learning Centre features an exciting outdoor play area for children to explore, build confidence, and develop friendships.

Outdoor play is an essential experience for young children as it plays a vital role in their physical, cognitive, social and emotional development.

The outdoor play area is different at each Kids Academy centre, but all include a large playground, cubby house, sandpit and space to run, jump, balance and climb. It's bright, colourful, and kids love it!

Meals Prepared Onsite

Each day our Kids Academy Centre Cooks prepare a wide variety of nutritious meals and purees onsite for the children and babies in our centres, taking the time to involve the children in meal preparation and healthy food education.

Creativity is essential when satisfying a number of young food critics every day, as is care, to ensure children's daily nutritional needs, and any individual cultural or dietary requirements are being met.
