Our Junior Kindy Program

Jnr-Kindy

This room is a prep-kindergarten program at Karratha Early Learning. It has a wonderful educational program which uses the educators assessment and extensive knowledge on where the children are and where they need to be, to plan to help them reach their goal. We use jolly phonics, number based programs and a creative approach to ensure the curriculum is delivered in an exciting way to engage the jnr-kindy children. With an enabling environment and a focus on sustainability and recycling, we teach the children about life skills and help nurture the whole child. It is important to us to ensure that we help each child follow their own interests and design the learning around this. Through play based learning and peer role modeling we try to encourage all children to participate in a range of activities to get them ready for kindergarten.
