Faith Lutheran Kindergarten opened its doors in 2006 and has been blessed with a supportive community since its conception. The positive role of the community has ensured the establishment of an extensive range of equipment and resources that enhance the development of the children attending the Service.
Our program stimulates and excites young minds, as well as providing challenges to think and problem solve. A co-operative and engaging learning environment is enjoyed within the Kindy. There is a focus on both child-initiated and teacher-initiated experiences to extend knowledge and create new learning opportunities. Confidence and willingness to have a go are developed through our innovative art and music programs. Literacy and numeracy concepts are an integral part of our learning and are visible within all areas of our program.
We are fortunate to be able to offer a beautifully landscaped outdoor environment in which the children can discover more about nature. Our program offers the opportunity to learn about gardening and looking after the world around us, including the flora and fauna that we come into contact with in our own backyards.
Services covered by the National Quality Framework have been assessed and rated against the seven Quality Areas of the National Quality Standard and the Education and Care Services National Regulations. The assessment and rating process aims to drive continuous quality improvement for services and provide families with better information for making choices about their children’s education and care. The overall rating for a service is determined by the combination of the ratings achieved in each Quality Area.
Each state and territory Regulatory Authority undertakes the assessment and rating process. The Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority, ACECQA, is responsible for ensuring consistency in assessment and ratings across Australia, assessing services for the Excellent rating and creating awareness in the sector and community about the assessment and rating process.
