Some locations also have an after-school care facility that can accommodate children aged between 4 and 12 years.
Because there is an overlap in ages between the different groups, it’s good to be aware that in our horizontal groups, your child will not automatically progress to the infant group at the age of one year, and to the toddler group at the age of two years.
Challenging children at their own pace
Each group therefore has space (and options) for continuing to accommodate older children. The childcare staff are responsible for continuing to challenge all of the children in the group, and helping and supporting them on their way to independence. At Kindergarden, this is truly separate from a child’s age. Each child develops in their own way and at their own pace.
At Kindergarden, we take a child-focused approach, which means that we encourage children to start an activity independently or do an activity in which they receive few instructions from our childcare staff. This enables children to learn through play, and helps them grow in self-confidence.
