About Us and Our Programme
Our Kindergarten is housed in a beautiful villa within a home like setting nestled between the bush and sea within the suburb of Eastbourne. We see our local community as an extension of the learning environment, rich with possibilities.
The environment is important in our programme and emphasis is placed on the provision of a beautiful, stimulating setting carefully arranged to invite exploration and the development of ideas. Our learning environment is flexible, adaptable, reflective and forever evolving. Recycled materials, furniture, art objects, treasures, resources and the layout of work areas contribute to our programme provoking children’s imagination, creativity and wonder. The concept of sustainability is promoted, offering a mechanism for parents, children and teachers to contribute to the life of our Kindergarten.
We are a teaching team of five teachers, including the Head Teacher who has overall responsibility for our Kindergarten. Each of our teachers brings with them life skills, knowledge and experiences which contribute to our diverse, inclusive learning programme and environment. All teachers are qualified and registered; dedicated to providing a high quality service for children and their families.
At East Harbour Kindergarten we are committed to providing high quality care, learning environments and challenging opportunities for children and a high standard of service to our parents.
