Palmwoods Community Kindergarten and Preschool is affiliated with the Creche & Kindergarten Association which was established in 1907. The service is staffed by professionally qualified early childhood educators including our directors Lise Dunn B.T. Early Childhood and Roseann Gresinger Bachelor of Education Early Childhood and Bachelor of Music.
The centre's play-based curriculum incorporates a wide variety of learning experiences catering to the individual needs and learning styles of each child. Children are encouraged to engage in a multitude of learning experiences which promote the growth of children through cognitive (literacy, numeracy, discovery and problem solving) affective (social and emotional) and physical (gross and fine motor skills and co-ordination) realms of learning.
At Palmwoods Kindergarten & Preschool we recognise the rights of each child and encourage students to make rational choices and to identify the responsibilities which accompany these choices.
The centre classifies parents as partners in the educational process and therefore welcome and encourage parent participation.
