Kindergarten at Campbell Primary School
Campbell Kindergarten is located at the main school site on Campbell Road, Canning Vale. In 2017, there are six sessional Kindergarten classes. Each class attends the centre for five days each fortnight. Students come from both the Campbell PS catchment area and the surrounding schools. All students participate in the same curriculum; they play together and learn from each other.
Early Childhood Education is highly valued at Campbell PS as it provides the building blocks for all subsequent successful learning. Students learn through a wide variety of hands-on interactive experiences that build on the prior learning of each child. The curriculum is based on the Early Years Learning Framework and the seven areas of the National Quality Standards and supports the central themes of Being, Belonging and Becoming.
Team planning is collaborative and focused on addressing the needs and interests of all children. There is an ongoing emphasis on early intervention and the school works closely with outside agencies to identify and provide for students who require additional support, particularly in the areas of social and emotional development, speech and occupational therapy.
Teachers also work closely with staff at the main school to ensure a seamless transition between campuses.
Parent participation is encouraged through a range of activities including for Mother’s and Father’s days, Harmony Week celebrations, a parent help roster, information sessions and the provision of parent workshops on a variety of topics including nutrition and reading with your child.
