Hansen Park Pre School Mission Statement:
To respect and value each child as an active participant of the Kindergarten program, where the educators meet the interests and needs of children through highly integrated play based programs; and ensuring best practice, care and education through working in partnership with families.
Our Philosophy- 'We have the strength and knowledge to create change for future generations'
The children's best interests are at the forefront of our philosophy.
The aim of our kindergarten is to develop meaningful experiences enabling the child to learn as they explore thier own interests.
We value the importance of play as it enhances all areas of a child's development.
“Play is the work of young children”
It is the foundation of academic learning. It is the preparation young children require, before formal education (reading, writing, mathematics) can be achieved.
At Hansen Park Pre School we know that children’s earliest educational experiences occur within the family home and that their parents are their first teachers. We feel that for young children to have the greatest opportunity to reach their full potential, parent participation must play an important role in the kinder program. Thus parents are encouraged to become active participants with us in their child’s education at Kindergarten.
We are looking forward to an exciting and rewarding year with you and your child.
