At Ballara Park Kindergarten we offer an educational program that is firmly based on diverse learning needs of our children.

We are committed to ensuring this takes place in an environment where children are provided with a wide range of opportunities to learn through activity based, hands on activities and experiences.

We follow an inquiry approach to our learning. We recognise that children develop in different rates and in different ways emotionally, intellectually, socially, physically and spiritually. All aspects are important and each is interwoven with the others.

Our role is to provide relevant and purposeful experiences which support, stimulate and structure a child's learning in order to bring about a progression of development appropriate to their needs and abilities.

We believe that the optimum development of each child's skills, competencies and positive self concept are achieved when families and early educators work together in partnership.

We believe that play experiences and the development of quality relationships are important to children's learning and significantly contribute to their growth.
