Our Kindergarten Program for 3-4 year olds* forms the final year of Friends’ Early Learning and the first year of connection to the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (PYP) which continues throughout the Primary School. Across the year in the PYP, our 3-4 year old children engage with four overarching Units of Inquiry, Who we are, How we express ourselves, How the world works and Sharing the planet. These rich and rigorous projects change and adapt every year, closely tailored to the ideas and interests of the children. Through the PYP, children are immersed in stimulating contexts for playful inquiry and engage with culture and language in a transdisciplinary way. This program incorporates weekly specialist classes in Music, Physical Education and Library, providing a seamless transition to the 4-5 year old Kindergarten Program in the School the following year.
*To be eligible for our 3 year old Kindergarten Program children must have turned 3 by January 1st and be eligible to attend 4-year-old Kindergarten Program the following year.
