Yarra Warra Preschool & Bush Kinder is a play based program aiming to teach our children to learn through experimenting and problem solving, explore, hypothesize, discover, test their ideas, modify their ideas, apply and communicate their understanding.
Using our unique physical environment to provide a stimulating, safe and nurturing program that addresses the development needs of the 'whole child'.
Yarra Warra Preschool is set amongst the natural bush, overlooking the Yarra River in North Warrandyte. The preschool offers 3 year old and 4 year old programs.
Yarra Warra Preschool is one of only a few kindergartens in Australia that offers a true Bush Kinder program. The Bush Kinder program is currently incorporated into our 4 year old kinder program.
Our program is influenced by our community, other educators in the field, a variety of pedagogical influences such as Reggio Emilia, Steiner, Te Whariki learning stories, Montessori, our collaborative relationship with our families and the Early Years Learning Framework.
Our centre believes that all children and families are able to access, participate and have a place in our kinder community and play a vital role within the kindergarten, where we can all contribute, and share and respect others. Our goal is that every child and family feels a sense of belonging within our community; that we are all constantly growing, evolving, questioning, contributing, being respectful to others and developing to connect within our community.
Play is the basis of our program. Through play the children learn how to experiment/problem solve, explore, hypothesize, discover, test their ideas, modify their ideas, apply and communicate their understanding. Our unique physical environment enables us to provide a stimulating, safe and nurturing program that addresses the development needs of the 'whole child'. Our flexible indoor and outdoor areas are designed to cater for a curriculum that encompasses the many foundations of the children's learning. A wide variety of educational materials are selected to enhance and inspire how the children approach them.
Yarra Warra Preschool have achieved a DEECD rating of 'EXCEEDING NATIONAL STANDARD'.
We are staffed by an outstanding team led by our Director, Connie Solty, who is recognised as an 'Exemplary' Teacher by DEECD.
