Kindergarten ELC

Welcome to Waverley Christian College Kindergarten. We look forward to partnering with you in your child’s education. Kindergarten is the first year of formal education in which children are preparing to begin school. During this year, child Kindergarten is a play-based environment where children learn at their own pace and are able to engage with activities of interest to them. There are also focused group times and lessons each day.

As a Christian Kindergarten, we are guided by Biblical principles and put God at the centre of each aspect of the program. Children take part in daily prayer times, Bible lessons and are encouraged to practice Christian values in their day-to-day interactions with one another.

Waverley Christian College Kindergarten is also closely connected with the College and adheres to the school philosophy and values. We provide many opportunities for the Kindergarten children to familiarize themselves with the school environment in an effort to ease the transition to Prep.

Kindergarten Philosophy

At Waverley Christian College Kindergarten we are dedicated to working with families and children to develop Christ-like character as we explore God’s world together.

We believe that children learn best through working with hands-on experiences based on real life engagement and explored through play-based activities. In response to this, educators use our kinder program to promote students to be independent, creative thinkers who have a passion for learning and develop a strong connection with their Creator God.

We believe that the most important principles in life are loving God and loving others. These are the foundational values of Waverley Christian College and govern all that we seek to be and do as we work and learn together. In dependence on the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, we will endeavour to be a school community that reflects His life and values.
