Learning @ Ally's
Our Kindergarten Room
At Ally’s Kindy in Ipswich, we are definitely embracing the Government’s commitment to all children in the year prior to Prep. Our Kindergarten Program is run by a qualified Early Childhood Teacher who has been teaching for over 10 years. Our lovely Miss Leeanne’s program is based on the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines.
Our program has been developed to prepare your child for a strong start to their primary school years. Our educators aim to mix both child-led and teacher-led activities.
Grounded in the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines, our Kindy program includes teaching your child literacy and numeracy skills, recognition skills, communications skill, just to name a few.
Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines
Ally’s Kindy has always believed in the quality of providing the 4-5 year age group with a qualified four year trained early childhood teacher. We supply our children with a teacher who has a Bachelor of Education in early childhood. We are definitely embracing the Government’s commitment to all children in the year prior to Prep having access to programs run by a qualified teacher.
The Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines are based on the Early Years Learning Framework, helps teachers to develop quality learning programs for children in the Kindergarten year (the year prior to Prep). It also helps centres meet the National Quality Standards for educational programs.
The guideline builds connections between a child already knows or can do and their learning at Kindergarten and future learning in Prep. For further information visit the Queensland Studies Authority website www.qsa.qld.edu.au and see the attached leaflet.

Transitioning to Prep
The Centre provides a transition statement that is created to build and share an accurate picture of the child’s learning. This involves educators, families and the child to plan focused discussion on the child’s learning. A copy of the transitional statement is given to families to pass onto the school.
The transition statement summarises a child’s learning, recognising that children’s learning is fluid, particularly as they transition to a new setting, and that each learning and development area describes a range of key focuses and significant learnings.
