What is Pre-Kindy?

Richmond Christian College’s Pre-Kindy is an educational program for children aged 4 years. Our aim is to prepare children for their first year of school through a learning program designed to jump start them in their reading and effective literacy. Our Christian values and beliefs inform every decision we make in the way we care for and teach your child. Our goal is to assist children in becoming confident, responsible individuals who have a strong sense of self worth and who understand what it is to have integrity, perseverance and tolerance. All children are taught the value of serving others both at school, at home and in the community.

The program currently runs three days per week Wednesday to Friday 8.50am to 2.55pm.

What is taught?

Pre-Kindy Curriculum

Pre-Kindy will provide a curriculum-based program aligned with the NSW Board of Studies syllabus through play-based activities. The objectives will be to allow smooth integration into our K-6 Literacy and Numeracy program with outcomes modelled on current worldwide research.

Belonging, Being and Becoming: The Early Years Learning Framework

Within the nationally accredited framework, there are three concepts that characterise children’s lives: Belonging, Being and Becoming. We believe a child—from even before birth—is linked to God, family, community, church family, culture and place. Through these relationships, a child’s development and learning takes place.

What Parents are Saying

“We enrolled our daughter in Pre-Kindy in 2016. We were so impressed at the skills she developed and how well this programme prepared her for an extremely smooth transition into her schooling years.”

Rod and Katie Mallam

“The Pre-Kindy program provides a seamless transition into the school community and ensures that as the children begin Kindergarten they are all at a common level of understanding of basic literacy and numeracy, this enables the whole class to thrive as they begin their formal learning together.”

Alison Brown

“The teachers have always been very encouraging, patient, easy to talk to and really get to know each child individually, which has bought out the very best in our daughter.”
