Three and four year old education Kindergarten programs are available across the Wimmera for children prior to school entry.

Kindergarten programs are usually play based educational programs, designed and delivered by a qualified early childhood teacher to children in the year or two before commencing full time schooling.

Kindergarten programs are designed to improve your child's development in the following key areas:

  • Social skills, like how to play with other children in a calm, sharing and rewarding way
  • Self-awareness and respect for others
  • Emotional skills, for example understanding  feelings
  • Language, literacy and numeracy skills, such as reading stories and counting objects
  • A joy for learning and group activities, such as talking, drawing and making things together with other children their own age
  • Ability to make new friends
  • Exposure to new ideas and concepts
