At Maldon Pre-School we strive to create a warm and
inviting environment for children and their families.
Our dedicated teachers offer a safe and nurturing
environment in which children can explore their surroundings, engage in
stimulating and educational activities, learn more about themselves and enjoy
supported interaction with their peers. We endeavour to extend children’s innate
curiosity and enthusiasm for learning by providing stimulating and open-ended
activities which foster holistic development of skills and leave children with a
confident sense of self. Our teachers observe the children closely to gauge
current interests and strengths whilst assessing developmental skills and
learning styles. This informs program planning which is guided by both the
National and the Victorian Frameworks.
Each day learning experiences for the group are
noted in the “Reflections Book” which can be viewed in the centre by parents and
visitors. A much loved book for families, it provides an insight into the
program and how the children interact and socialise with each other. A gift is
presented to each family at the end of the year which includes an e-copy of the
At Maldon Pre-School, we foster a culture of
respect for ourselves, each-other and the environment. We are committed to
sustainable practices such as recycling, composting and growing food. Wherever
possible, we use natural materials and equipment in the program. We teach
children to engage respectfully with all living things.
Maldon Pre-School has a vibrant and active
committee of parents who meet regularly to organise fundraising events and
address the ongoing running needs of the Pre-School. There are many ways that
families can be involved and we encourage their participation.
Pre-School maintains strong and active links with the local community,
participating in the annual Easter Parade, visiting Maldon Primary School,
utilising the services of the Atheneum, (local library) and enjoying visits
from our friendly police constable, the CFA, local artists and musicians.
