Programs

At Doncaster East Pre-School we value each child as a unique individual and this is reflected in all aspects of our kindergarten program. Activities are planned and chosen by our educators to build each child’s confidence, independence and sense of belonging. Through our observations and interactions with the children as well as our communications with families and the wider community we are able to plan and adapt a kindergarten program that best reflects the interests, ideas and developmental needs of the children in each group.
