At Watsonia North Preschool, our learning program covers a
wide range of topics and focuses on different things
throughout the year. We organise various incursions and
special events to further consolidate our learning with the
Every term, the 3 year old and 4 year old groups participate
in an incursion that relates to their learning. We aim to invite
different groups into the preschool to excite, educate, engage
and entertain the kids.
For the 4 year old group, they typically go on an excursion to
Edendale Farm in Term 4.
Along with these incursions, we also utilise Government/Council funded programs such as the Responsible Pet Ownership Program, Thingle Toodle Road Safety Program and Smiles for Miles Dental visits, to name a few.
Building connections within our surrounding community is fostered through visits from the local librarian for storytelling time, from the local Police, as well as from the local primary school children and teachers. Our connections to the wider community extends to our participation in events such as Crazy Hair Day to raise money for the Leukemia Foundation, or to collecting toys/resources for those in need via The Big Group Hug organization.
Special events are also celebrated at Watsonia North Preschool; such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas Concerts and Graduation. We believe in creating memories with our loved ones and sharing this special time with our families and our Kinder community.
To further engage the children, we regularly participate in general events such as Breakfast at Kinder, dress up days, Footy days and many more.
