Our kindergarten has been a part of the Sebastopol community for over 30 years. Sebastopol South Kindergarten boasts a huge, natural outdoor environment which promotes children’s connectedness to the environment, and gives children opportunities to investigate and explore through a wide range of play experiences. Our outdoor space includes a large undercover sandpit, vegetable garden, climbing equipment and a large grassed area for running and games. Also within our outdoor space we have a large undercover area with picnic tables, enabling children to access the outdoor space during all seasons along with a nice place to eat during the warmer weather.
The Children’s program, which is delivered by qualified Early Childhood Education staff, is a high quality program based on the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development framework. We believe that young children learn through play, it allows them to explore, identify, negotiate, take risks and create meaning. Teaching is intentional where literacy and numeracy are embedded in fun ways throughout our program. We value the use of natural materials, loose parts and foster children’s cultural competence.
