With Heart

We see the children, their family and staff as a community of learners all working together.

Our Children

We believe children’s learning and development is supported best through meaningful and engaged play based learning.

Our Community

We see the children, their family and staff as a community of learners all working together.

We believe a strong partnership between the home, kindergarten and local community fosters and enriches learning. We value input from family and the children into the curriculum and planning, as well as in the assessment of learning.  We see the children, their family and staff as a community of learners all working together.

Our Early Childhood Educators use a range of assessments, for building up a picture of each child’s learning, to understand what children know and can do. We record the information in many ways such as observations, learning stories, reflections, documentation, digital documentation, learning journals and portfolios. This information is then used to make decisions and build on each individual child’s strengths, interests and knowledge.
Our modern facilities and our outdoor garden space provide for an ever changing learning environment. Most importantly we aim to stimulate your child’s creativity and imagination, to build on their natural curiosity and develop a lifelong love of learning.

The Oakleigh Primary School Kindergarten is situated in a separate custom-designed building adjoining the school. We are an integral part of the school community nurtured through sharing school staff and facilities. We participate in specialist classes including art, library, music/drama and physical education. We borrow from the school library on a regular basis. One of the most important initiatives is the buddy system where kindergarten children are teamed up with children in grades four and five. These relationships continue to help create a seamless transition to the school in Year Prep.

Oakleigh Primary School and Kindergarten and Out of School Hours Care community work collaboratively and share common goals, values and beliefs about the best way to support children and families on their educational path.

We encourage respectful, collaborative relationships between children, families, the school, communities and educators, with our common focus being the child. We value an inclusive, supportive and caring environment where children, families and educators come together as a community of learners. We provide support to each child to promote their health and wellbeing through a spirit of warmth and respect underpinned by a commitment to social justice.

We believe children’s learning and development is supported best through meaningful and engaged play based learning. We acknowledge and challenge children’s understanding of their world. We are committed to being environmentally responsible by modelling sustainable practice.

We respect and celebrate the culture and diversity within our community and beyond. We support the individual needs of our children to develop the view that learning is fun, exploratory and exciting.

We believe in children’s respectful learning and development.
