We aim to make Kingscliff Mini School an extension of the home and family and to provide a stimulating environment in which to promote optimum creative, social, emotional, intellectual and physical development for each child.
Kingscliff Mini School has an ongoing connection with the community; a place where families meet and create lifelong friendships -a place where children feel safe and secure as they grow and learn - a place where children experience the wonder of early child hood through play - a place where strong relationships are developed between adults and children through mutual trust and friendship.
Through both planned and spontaneous activities and experiences, staff members strive to extend individual competence and confidence in all these areas of development.
Early literacy and numeracy skills are a constant focus throughout our program and in the everyday experiences at Mini School and each child's individual interests and strengths are fostered and programmed for. Group interests are also followed and extended upon, creating an opportunity for families and even extended families to participate.
Each child will have an individual "Portfolio" in which staff members and family can contribute observations, comments, photos, work samples, letters and ideas for the program. This "Portfolio" documents your child's learning over the course of the year, allowing you to 'see' their emerging skills developing into learned concepts.
