Albury Wodonga Community College’s four year old kindergarten programs are funded by the Department of Education and Training (DET) and delivered by qualified Early Childhood Teachers. DET provides funding to support children who turn four before 30th April, to attend kindergarten in the year before they start school. Kindergarten provides a safe and supportive environment for children to explore their capacity for learning through play-based activities.
Kindergarten is a place where children:-
Have a strong sense of identity
Are connected and contribute to their world
Have a strong sense of well being
Are confident and involved learners
Are effective communicators
Depending on the number of children enrolled at each venue, the College’s Kindergarten Services adapt the program to meet individual community requirements.
As at present, all three year old kindergarten programs are unfunded by the Victorian Government. Community Early Years Childcare offers a three year old fee-for-service program if sufficient number of enrolments are available. This program can be delivered as a stand alone session or as a combined group with a four year old program. Children are eligible to enrol, if they have had their third birthday before April 30 of that year.
