Kurrajong centre - Coming Soon

Hi Families

Thank you for visiting our site. At Happy Days Kindergarten, you will be rest assured that your child is cared for in a safe, happy and highly educational environment.

 

We have a solid reputation for providing high quality long-day child care service, including a renowned School Readiness Program for Preschoolers.

We have dedicated staff who genuinely care for the safety and wellbeing of the children, as well as being highly trained & experienced in the industry. Our Educator-To-Children ratios are generally above regulatory requirements which facilitate higher quality learning and supervision for Happy Days children.

 

Our teaching approach strongly focuses in providing the children with as much learning opportunities as possible within a positive and stimulating environment. Our programs and activities are designed to encourage the children's natural curiosity of the world around them which we believe cultivates habitual learning

 

Our education program is based on the principle of balanced growth in all aspects of a child’s development, i.e. physically, emotionally, intellectually and socially. We are also guided by the Australian National Early Years and Learning Framework.

COME AND VISIT US! We look forward to welcoming your family to Happy Days and partnering closely with you in providing your child with the best possible care and a strong start to their journey of lifelong learning.

Age Based Learning

Self-Expression

As Albert Einstein quotes, "Imagination is more important than knowledge”. We conduct activities that stimulate CREATIVITY and IMAGINATION in children. Such activities foster CRITICAL THINKING and CREATIVE PROBLEM SOLVING which enable your child to think outside the box and develop their  ability to overcome obstacles with confidence on their own.

Community Awareness

We conduct regular CULTURAL and COMMUNITY CELEBRATIONS and CHARITY EVENTS to expand the children's community awareness and care.

Social Skills

Our Playing And Learning to Socialise (PALS) program helps the children develop a sense of care, respect and compassion for others; awareness between acceptable and non-acceptable social behaviours (and learning strategies in handling the latter); and a healthy self-image and confidence. Our activities are designed to give the children plenty of opportunities to learn and practice how to SHARE, LISTEN, FOLLOW DIRECTIONS, EMPHATISE, be PATIENT, RESPECTFUL of boundaries, be POSITIVE, COLLABORATE and COOPERATE, and much more.

Individuality

We recognise each child has different learning styles, preferences and needs. Our teaching approach allows for these differences. We play to each child's strengths and help them develop weaker areas.
