Dalby youngsters can experience kindy for a morning

Samfya Smith - Monday, June 19, 2017
Snow White KindergartenThe first day of kindy can be a daunting prospect for some children, so our kindergarten in Dalby has come up with a solution. 

Snow White Kindergarten is offering children the opportunity to experience a morning at kindy at their upcoming open day on Tuesday 20 June.

“We are opening up the Centre for any interested parents to bring their children for a two hour session to find out how much fun kindy really is”, said Snow White Kindergarten Director Megann Rummell.

“Children will follow a normal morning routine of 'good morning' and acknowledgement of country on the mat, followed by a range of play experiences including playdough, threading, painting, home corner play and block construction, followed by story time and morning tea.

“It’s a great way for children to feel comfortable before they start, but also for parents to gain an insight into the structure and the benefits of the Kindergarten program.”

While the focus is very much on play, Megann explains there is a lot more to the Kindergarten program than may appear to the casual observer.

“We carefully plan our daily learning experiences around the needs, interests and abilities of each child, and support them in all areas of their development, including fine and gross motor skills, cognitive skills as well as social and emotional awareness”, said Megann.

Snow White Kindergarten, now a division of the Kath Dickson Family Centre, has been a feature of the Dalby community for decades.

“Our Educators are all fully qualified, caring, passionate people who have been educating children with over 15 years worth of experience each.

“We understand that each child comes to us with their own experiences and knowledge and it is our role, as educators, to help them to explore their world and understandings further, to explore, investigate and make new discoveries.

“It is a responsibility we take very seriously…but fortunately it’s a role we absolutely love!”
