Welcome to Canterbury Norwood Kindergarten
At Canterbury Norwood Kindergarten we pride ourselves on the provision of a quality pre-school service within a nurturing, inclusive and stimulating environment. We are a small, community based kindergarten run by a committee of past and current parents, our program is underpinned by a belief in growth through imaginative play and the joy of music and stories.
Learning through play
Play based learning is provides our children with an unrestricted learning experience that embraces both their creativity and problem solving skills whilst the work and play together and across many different activities.
When starting Kinder children will begin to learn the structure of the day. Arriving to kinder they will learn to put away their own bags and lunches and prepare for the day. They will become more responsible for packing up activities and their own personal hygiene.
Our Kinder has a unique integration of many different musical activities and our coordinator Karen loves nothing more than playing the piano and singing with the children. Music is also used for it’s calming properties when the children have their rest time.
