3+ activity groups - quality early learning before kindergarten
ECMS has recently reviewed the services we offer for 3-year-old children and families in the Wyndham area. As a result we have decided not to continue offering 3+ activity groups in 2018, but will instead be increasing the number of places available for 3-year-olds at two of our larger and well-resourced kindergartens in Wyndham.
Alamanda Kindergarten and Tarneit Central Kindergarten provide programs for 3 and 4-year-olds. In 2018, 3-year-old kindergarten programs will be able to support 242 children, and sessions run for three hours, once a week. Kindergarten fees are $315 per term.
3-year-old kindergarten programs are delivered by two trained early learning educators, at least one of whom is a bachelor degree qualified kindergarten teacher. The staff at both Alamanda and Tarneit are highly experienced and the programs are run by nominated supervisors who have been working in the sector for 20 years. Both centres have received ‘exceeding’ ratings in the National Quality Standards.
If a kindergarten place doesn’t match the requirements for your child or family, there are other organisations who offer 3+ activity groups in the Wyndham area.
If you would like to discuss early year’s education options for your child or have any questions about the kindergarten program at Tarneit or Alamanda, please contact Joanna Harper, ECMS customer services co-ordinator in Wyndham on 8754 4999.
Alternately there are other service provides (which we have listed below) that run 3 year old activity programs. We have included their details should you wish to contact them directly.
