Baulkham Hills Preschool Kindergarten provides a happy, safe and stimulating learning environment, enriching all who take part in its caring, welcoming and diverse community.
Our indoor and outdoor learning environments are engaging and responsive to children’s ideas, interests, strengths, culture and abilities. We connect with each child’s potential, creativity and uniqueness. We work in collaborative partnerships with parents and families.
Our preschool learning environment reflects the view that children are capable, resourceful, valued and respected. We support children to become confident learners, where each child takes an active part in their own learning through meaningful experiences and opportunities. The educators are central in their role to actively facilitate children’s learning in intentional, purposeful and thoughtful ways. Educators guide and support children to be active participants in the preschool’s programs.
Learning environments support children to be confident and involved learners where they can develop dispositions for learning such as curiosity, enthusiasm, persistence, confidence, curiosity, commitment, reflexivity and imagination.
Learning areas and experiences are designed and implemented by highly skilled and experienced early childhood educators. Learning and play are embedded into daily programs and practices and include: mathematics/science/technology concepts, numeracy and literacy concepts, fine motor and gross motor skills, language and communication development, social/emotional and independence skills, music and movement, creativity and imaginative play, health/nutrition/well-being concepts, and school readiness.
Indoor and outdoor play environments are equally valued learning environments at our preschool. Our outdoor learning environment has large open natural play spaces, while our indoor learning environment has warm and inviting play spaces. The preschool is very well resourced.
