LEAP into Kindy 2022

We invite you to enjoy our LEAP play-based sessions with a difference! Unlock your child’s learning potential before they start school in 2022.

Research shows that children who attend play-based sessions during early childhood have significantly better development when they start school, and that the benefits of opportunities such as LEAP are seen across all areas of development as measured by the Australian Early Development Census (AEDC).

Our 1-hour LEAP sessions held via Zoom are designed to help your child with their own learning as they work alongside teachers and yourself within an engaging and creative space.

  Session 1

  Wed 6 October

  9:30am to 10:30am

  Scribble, Snip, Paste!

  Children love to scribble but did you know that the marks they make on a page are their first steps to writing?

  Encourage your child to communicate their thoughts and record their ideas.
