Kinder Red Room

  • Overview: Kinder Red Room

    Wyndarra’s Kinder Room caters for up to 16 children between 3 ½ to 5 years of age.

    Our Kinder Room has recently been renovated with more cupboard space for educational and teaching equipment.

    The Kinder Red room has a large wet area for the children to explore. Play is the most effective means for providing rich, diverse thinking and oral language, social skills and problem solving.

    The Kinder Room carers provide experiences for the children to prepare them for primary school. Their play becomes more structured and self-help skills are encouraged and supported during their play.

    The play yard has a large bark area, with challenging climbing equipment and medium size trampoline, a large sandpit, decorative decked area for table activities, great size cubby house and large concrete area for bikes, scooters and wheelbarrows.

    Our gardens are well developed providing beautiful shady play spaces and a natural learning environment for the children to discover and explore.

    The children manage a worm farm and the fertilizer is used on their veggie garden. Herb and veggies from their garden is scaffolded through their learning and used in cooking experiences. 

    Room Ratio 1 staff per 11 children.
