Information for families
Staverton Kindergarten received an overall rating of Exceeding National Quality Standards by the Office of Early Childhood Education and Care. As part of the National Quality Framework under which all Kindergarten programmes are assessed, we exceed expectations in 6 out of the 7 areas.
The high quality of our programme built by our teachers has been a key part of this result. Alongside this, the dedication of our Educators and our dilligent and commendable committee, have all contributed to the wonderful culture of playing, discovering and growing here at Staverton. A quote from the report ‘at Staverton our ‘[Teachers and Educators] have created a sense of ‘belonging’ in the design of both indoor and outdoor environments and demonstrate play can be a catalyst for learning everywhere.’
This encapsulates what Staverton is all about in preparing our children to start learning outside our homes about the world that we live in and how to thrive as capable, confident and active learners.
