Kinder Program

The Program at DDKC is designed to reflect the needs of individual and groups of children based on educator observations, parent input and intentional teaching.


Educators plan programs of varied learning experiences that are designed to promote children's development. These learning experiences will be planned according to the EYLF* for individual children. These activities include language and literature, music and movement, art and craft, dramatic play, science and math's experiences and sensory motor activities to promote physical coordination.


Centre staff complete individual planning records and child profiles for each child. This information forms the basis of individual plans, thus meeting the needs of each child. This program is regularly evaluated and parent input is actively encouraged and sought. All educators are involved in program planning.  
Our daily reflection is updated each afternoon and shows what the children have been doing throughout the day, through words and photos.  Please take the time to have a look and ask your child questions, it is a great way to start a conversation and encourage them to reflect on their day.
