Helping Your Child Explore, Grow, & Learn

What We Offer

Curriculum

Staff will support your child in their learning journey at Hay Preschool Kindergarten by facilitating play based and child lead experiences drawn from the child’s interests. When a child is allowed to exercise their right to choose and pursue his or her own interest’s they will feel safe and secure, enabling them to fully explore everything that we have to offer. Our curriculum offers your child the choice of a wide variety of play and learning experiences that balance active and restful, noisy and quiet, structured and spontaneous, messy and clean, indoor and outdoor play as well as participation in individual, small group and large group experiences.

With a strong focus on holistically fostering children’s physical, creative, cognitive, language and in particular social and emotional development, our preschool curriculum encompasses all areas of learning including maths, science, technology, music & movement, literacy and the creative arts. We encourage children to become confident and involved learners who are active participants working alongside expert Educators in the development and implementation of the preschool curriculum.

Family Communication

To assist you in following your child’s progress during their time at Preschool, we utilise a digital App StoryPark, which is a platform for communicating your child’s day to day experiences as well as their ongoing developmental progress.

Our program focuses on the EYLF approach of “Belonging, Being and Becoming”.

Family Involvement

Hay Preschool Kindergarten values family participation which can take the form of:

  • Participation in ‘Stay and Play’ at the preschool (please see your child’s educator if you are able to participate in any way). Families are most welcome at Hay Preschool Kindergarten. The children love having parents, grandparents and carers visit and help out.
  • Become a committee member
  • Attend meetings.
  • Take part in working bees.
  • Attend excursions and/or school activities.
  • Volunteer assistance where possible.
  • Sharing cultural backgrounds.
  • Sharing an interest, such as cooking, reading a book, craft activity.

What Our Families are Saying

The eagerness my child has to attend preschool is a testament to the preschool and all the educators who do an amazing job. From hatching Chickens to giant Elephants on the roof what a wonderful place to learn through play. We are constantly updated on what the children are up to with pictures and stories on Storypark. My 2 year old can’t wait until he is old enough to go to Hay Preschool.

I just want to say a huge and special thank you to Allyce and her great staff with all that they do at Preschool.

It’s always a happy environment and they are so great with all the kids! I can’t thank you all enough for the amazing progress my son has achieved in the small amount of time he has been there! Well done ladies and keep up the fantastic work.

Melissa Lee - Parent

We are loving out time at Preschool – Lenny can’t wait to get there each week. He has become more confident with the help of the staff making it a very positive environment. The outdoor play areas are amazing. The staff are always happy and very welcoming. Lenny comes home and is always chatting about his fun day with lots of friends and his teachers.
