Our Program

Children learn best through play.  Activities and experiences developed for the children will be play based and encourage them to take on new challenges and achievements in a safe and secure environment.  Kindergarten tends to focus on lots of sensory experiences and supporting social and emotional development.  Children at this age are just starting to form friendships and are learning new social skills that require practice and sometimes assistance from supportive adults in their environment.  Ness Reserve fosters happy, self confident children – for they will be able to cope with life and will be eager to learn.  A positive self esteem is something a child will carry with them onto school and though out life.

At Ness we utilise two different timetables for our 4 year old group depending on the number of enrolments in that year, which are a single group rotational timetable and a set two group timetable.
A single group rotational timetable is where children attend 3 allocated sessions per week for 5 hours each session. Children are allocated to a smaller core group that is a constant for every session they attend and then the rest of the children who make up the group will vary for each of the 3 sessions.
However if our enrolment numbers are high enough then we change to a set two separate group timetable with 3 allocated sessions per week at varying lengths of time, 4 hours, 5 hours and 6 hours.


Below are the details for the two 
separate timetables.
