Kedron-Wavell helps the next generation succeedSeptember 26th, 2016
Located on a large leafy block, Everton Park Kindergarten gives children a sometimes missed sensory experience through direct access to a huge playground full of leafy trees, real grass, large sandpit, shady forest and an abundance of gardens. The staff feel the children enjoy playing in the natural environment listening to the wonderful birds and observing the many natural wonders of their surroundings.
The support from Kedron-Wavell Services Club contributes to the costs of the services the Kindergarten needs to maintain safety in such an abundant environment. This assistance ensures children can continue to play in and around large mature trees – something that is becoming increasingly difficult to provide in modern teaching environments.
The maintenance support assists the Everton Park Kindergarten in providing a rich and enjoyable environment for both the children and the broader family community, most notably at special events such as welcome barbeques, working parents’ mornings, grandparents’ days, kindy concerts, and the perennial favourite – ‘Pirate Day’.
Support from grant programs allows the non-profit Everton Park Kindergarten to continue to provide a rich variety of resources such as paint, craft, creative play equipment, books, puzzles, music and outdoor play equipment. This ensures that each day is exciting with children being able to direct the type of play by selecting their own equipment, working on projects and investigations, exploring, communicating, sharing, creating, imagining and much more.
Kedron-Wavell is thrilled to continue supporting such a diverse environment for young children of the community to grow and learn.
