Guardian Preschool & Kindergarten Program

There is so much focus these days on ensuring children are “ready” for Primary School. But what does that really mean and how can parents support the transition?

Guardian Childcare & Education understand the transition to formal schooling is one of the most significant milestones children will face. As a result, they have created the ‘Moving on Up to School’ Preschool Program to set the foundations for a positive start to your child’s first year of school.

How do Guardian help prepare children for School?

Guardian's contemporary, structured daily learning program means children get the best start to their schooling, while parents are able to better juggle the day-to-day thanks to longer care hours than those provided by community-based preschool and kindergarten programs.

Each of Guardian's programs focus on open-ended, play-based experiences that:

Teach the basic numeracy and literacy skills needed for academic success.
Instil valuable social and emotional skills required to be confident and resilient.
Have clear learning outcomes to prepare children for formal schooling, and beyond.
Guardian's qualified Teachers and passionate Educators know what to look for and are always observing and noting those significant social, emotional and academic milestones that will pave the way for school.

How do Guardian know your child is ready for school?

Through their contemporary approach, Guardian support and build on children’s learning through a wide range of real-world experiences that set them up for lifelong learning. Our environments inspire children to explore, collaborate, experiment, and imagine, bringing learning to life in fun-filled, tangible ways.

During these experiences, educators observe and support the behaviours that are key indicators for a successful transition to school and beyond. These are largely based on social and emotional readiness and are supported in several ways:

Enabling separation from parents and carers
Developing confidence and pride in who they are
Learning to take responsibility for themselves and others
Communicating and forming relationships
Becoming adaptable to cope with change
Practising resilience by persisting in the face of challenges
Initiating, being involved and willing to try new things
Problem-solving and encouraging curiosity.
