LORDS Little Wonders Kindergarten is the first footstep in an educational journey at Lutheran Ormeau Rivers District School (LORDS).
At the kindergarten we are at the very foundation of the LORDS motto of ‘Growing Together Side by Side’. Here we want the children to experience growth through play, through encounters with nature, through laughter, through character building and through the many facets of exploration in learning. These challenges and adventures will form the basis on which leadership, opportunities, respect, diligence and service will grow during the schooling years.
Our kindergarten is a purpose built single unit sessional kindergarten, constructed with capital funding from the Queensland Government. The kindergarten began operation on the 30th January 2012.
A play-based kindergarten program is provided by a qualified early childhood teacher and teacher assistant, following the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines and the Early Years Framework for Australia: Belonging, Being and Becoming.
Session Hours: 8:45am to 2:45pm with two groups attending a five day fortnight
Group 2 attends each Thursday and Friday and alternate Wednesdays
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.
