Golden Square Kindergarten is an accredited kindergarten located in Golden Square, a suburb of Bendigo, Victoria. We have long day and short day programs to support the access and participation of all children in a kindergarten program in the year prior to school entry. Our kindergarten program aims to advance each child’s learning and to optimise the development of key skills.
Our kindergarten programs are designed to:
- Develop children’s emotional and social skills.
- Engage each child as an effective learner
- Promote communication, learning and thinking
- Build positive relationships
- Enhance identity
All children are in a kindergarten program in the year prior to school entry.
Participation in a kindergarten program gives parents/guardians and families the opportunity to be part of a community focused on children’s wellbeing.
The kindergarten program also provides a place for parents/guardians to get to know other families and to share their experiences and information with early childhood professionals.
Golden Square Kindergarten is proud to have been assessed and rated against the seven Quality Areas of the National Quality Standard and the Education and Care Services National Regulations.
