My Kindy Gardening Program
Kids in the Garden
Children are born curious. They love to learn about new concepts and approach the natural world with wonder and awe. My Kindy provides opportunities for children to garden, care for plants and learn about sustainability. Children are given the opportunity to learn by doing, not just listening. By participating in gardening activities they gain a first-hand understanding of life cycles, plants, insects, soil and all things natural.
Our gardening program provides children with the freedom to play in the fresh air and sunshine whilst engaging in active hands on experiences. Our Educators and experts use gardening as an opportunity to help children connect their love of nature and sustainability to learning and the application of real-life skills.
Small Green Steps
My Kindy is committed to educating children about sustainable practices and environmental awareness through action and commitment. The Small Green Steps program is one of the initiatives undertaken throughout our centres to embed sustainable practices and encourage children to develop a love of nature. My Kindy is actively working to develop a green approach to waste management, energy efficiency, water conservation and climate change.
The Small Green Steps program is a 40 step environment program, specifically developed for early childhood and education services. The program encourages involvement by all educators, parents and children.
Active & Healthy Program
Physical activity is vital for a child’s development and lays the foundation for a healthy and active life. My Kindy recognises the importance of children developing healthy physical activity habits early in life and offers a wide choice of play-based, physically active learning experiences that link to children’s interests, abilities, identity and prior knowledge. Our program includes both spontaneous and intentionally planned active play (child initiated and educator led) that can be done indoors or outdoors.
Munchkin League is an additional inclusion to our active and healthy program. Munchkin League is a new and exciting early childhood development program specifically designed for 3-5 year olds flavoured with a Rugby League theme.
Munchkin League introduces children to the learning environment in a fun and interactive way with a philosophy of learning through play. Munchkin Leaguers are taught and supported by qualified early childhood educators who work with our My Kindy Educators to provide a comprehensive program for all children.
Munchkin League helps build the platform for a number of skills from reading to fine motor skills, communication and problem solving abilities. The program supports both social and emotional growth and is a great way for children to develop independence, self-confidence, self-awareness, be respectful towards others and make new friends.
Nikko Nikko Japanese
It’s never too early to begin learning a language: it’s fun, it promotes healthy development, and the many cognitive and social benefits will last a lifetime. Research shows that learning a second language boosts problem-solving, critical thinking, and listening skills, in addition to improving memory, concentration, and the ability to multitask. Children proficient in other languages also show signs of enhanced creativity and mental flexibility.
Nikko Nikko Japanese teaches children at My Kindy aged from two to five years to speak Japanese. Our focus is to create a casual and fun learning environment where young children readily learn through play like activities. By engaging children in a rich and fun language program, children will grow to become caring global citizens who can communicate with and appreciate people from other countries and cultures.
