Why Rangeview Pre-School?
As a parent, when selecting the right Pre-School for your child, it is important to find a safe and happy environment in which your child will be extended. At Rangeview Pre-School we have been providing a happy environment for our children for over 50 years.
The Pre-School is situated on a large allotment of land in a quiet suburban Mitcham street with ample on- and off-street parking. The recently refurbished Pre-School is spacious, light, modern, attractive and beautifully maintained.
From an early age children learn to work together and to use all their senses. Collaborative learning builds teamwork, self confidence and communication skills.
The Pre-School is a SunSmart Centre and an Asthma Accredited Centre.
Our Pre-School Program
At Rangeview Pre-School we offer play based educational programs. These programs are built upon a basis of sensitivity to childhood development. Through play, children are engaged in learning environments which allow them to develop socially, emotionally, physically and mentally.
The Pre-School strictly adheres to a war toy free zone. In a similar focus, we do not engage in violently oriented play e.g. Power Rangers, Ninjas or battle soldier games. We encourage children to value and appreciate our fellow inhabitants, both human and animals.
The program incorporates numerous learning activities including cooking, art, dance, drama, movement, maths, science, social studies, music, language, pre-reading and writing and is based around the following principals:
- Stimulating developmentally appropriate activities
- Perceptual motor program
- Variety of excursions and visitors to the Pre-School
- Providing a wide range of equipment
- Caring and enthusiastic staff
- Interaction and transition programs with local primary schools
- Numerous family social occasions
