Range Kindy welcomes students from Mapleton, Montville, Flaxton, Obi Obi, Kureelpa, Dulong, Nambour Heights and all surrounding areas.

At our Kindy we know that the early years are most important in laying the foundations for success in life and learning.

Not only are children active seekers of knowledge, but also ardent, and sometimes surprising, carriers of knowledge.  Through your child’s individual portfolio we strive to make this knowledge visible to you by capturing your child’s learning and thinking.  Portfolios are available to look through at any time and you will find them in the locker area near the comfortable lounges.  Children are able to access their portfolio at any time through their day.

Portfolios

Portfolios are more than a memory or keepsake of your child’s time at Kindy.

They provide...

  • you with an insight into your child's learning

  • your child with an opportunity to revisit and reflect on past experiences, record their learning, including their emerging literacy and numeracy skills

  • and staff with the knowledge we need to ensure your child's time with us is full of wonder and possibility.

The portfolio in linked to the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines and so based on five learning and development areas...

  1. Children have a strong sense of identity

  2. Children are connected with and contribute to their world

  3. Children have a strong sense of wellbeing

  4. Children are confident and involved learners

  5. Children are effective communicators

We also invite you to take the portfolio home to share with the rest of the family and to add to the portfolio from your experiences at home.  This way we can create a full picture of your child’s Kindy year.

 

Thank you for inviting us to be a part of your child’s learning journey.
