Our Kindergarten is part of the Hazel Glen Child and Family Centre which opened in 2015. The Centre is located on the Hazel Glen College grounds in Doreen in the City of Whittlesea.
The facility has four kinder rooms providing modern state of the art facilities for our community. The Kindergarten offers 3 year old Kindergarten, 4 year old Kindergarten and an Extended Care Program.
Our teachers design programs that reflect the five key learning outcomes:
Identity: children have a strong sense of identity
Community: children are connected with and contribute to their world
Wellbeing: children have a strong sense of wellbeing
Learning: children are confident and involved learners
Communication: children are effective communicators
It is believed these five learning outcomes are essential for assisting and developing children. This occurs naturally with ongoing collaboration between teachers, children and parents. Our Early Childhood professionals will:
Discuss your child’s learning with you
Ask advice from other professionals if they feel your child requires more support
Respect your family’s values, beliefs and decisions
Recognize that all children can learn
Support your child to learn by using the most effective teaching strategies
