Launching into Learning (LiL) & Learning in Families Together (LiFT)
We offer a range of welcoming and friendly Early Years programs as part of our Launching into Learning here at Waverley Primary School.
Play and Grow – is a playgroup for families with children from birth to 5 years and runs from 9.00-10.30am in our Early Years room, every Thursday. Children participate in a range of indoor and outdoor play-based learning experiences. Morning tea is provided for your child, with tea and coffee available for adults.
Mini Mozarts – is a fun and active music session which follows Play and Grow from 10.30-11.00am. Rhythm, song, movement and percussion activities promote oral language, body awareness, listening skills and an enjoyment of music.
Baby Group – is for babies and their parent or carer from birth to 1 years and is held on a Wednesday afternoon from 2.00-3.00pm in the Early Years room. We focus on all the exciting things that happen in the first year of development.
Kinder Connect – is offered to those students who will be attending Kindergarten in 2021. These sessions take place on a Friday from 9.00-10.30am in the Kindergarten room and provides play-based learning experiences, along with the introduction of some structured learning activities and routines to support a settled start to Kindergarten.
Kindergarten – at Waverley Primary School, Kindergarten is a place where children are invited to shine bright. We aim to ignite and nurture your child’s imagination, naturally curious mind and creativity. Building upon their capabilities in a meaningful and connected way through rich play experiences, social interaction and hands on, manipulative learning. We learn together, from each other valuing each other’s differences. Our environment is warm, friendly and inviting and allows children to feel safe and develop learning dispositions that create confident, resourceful and flexible thinkers and learners.
