The Camira Kindergarten program focuses on helping children to feel that they belong and have much to contribute to everyone as a group. This is encouraged by staff building positive relationships with children and their families; connecting children to the adults and other children in the kindy through play. Camira Kindergarten also has a wonderful natural environment where children are encouraged to investigate, explore and develop skills as they connect with nature. The teachers and educators work closely with individual children and small groups to support and extend their learning, providing opportunities for creative expression through a variety of art media and natural materials. They also provide caring support for children so that they can develop harmonious relationships with their peers, and so that each child follows their own pathway to success. Through play the children have creative opportunities to develop skills in language and literacy, mathematics, physical competence, art and science.
