Pre-Kinder Room

  • Overview: Pre-Kinder' Room

    Wyndarra’s Pre Kinder Room caters for up to 16 children between 2 to 3 years of age.

    The play room has a large carpet and large wet area to allow for a large range or activities to be provided. The Pre Kinder children have easy access to toilets and hand basins with appropriate viewing so staff are able to supervise and assist when need be. There is also a nappy change facility for the staff to access.

    The Pre Kinder children have a large play yard which they share with the Toddler children (all children under the age of three).

    The yard has a large decked area for table activities, a bark area for the climbing equipment, a concrete area for the bikes and scooters and a large sandpit.

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

    The children get to watch our two rabbits hop around their pens through the viewing glass whilst outside. Our Rabbits Clover and Soot are friendly and can be handled by the children under the supervision of adults.

    Room Ratio 1 staff per 4 children.
