Learning Through Play

Is an important part of the way our children learn and interact. It enables children to make sense of their world around them.

Promoting Creativity

In a warm, welcoming and stimulating educational environment which helps learners experiment, explore and grow in self-worth and confidence.

Engaging and Interactive

An engaging experience that encourages social skills, how to compromise and be respectful to others.

About

Our Vision. Our Mission. Our Aim.

Every parent knows and understands the importance of their child’s first year of education. With this in mind, Nicole and Jonathan Woolley founded Kids on the Bay with the vision of being a place where children can reach their full potential in accordance with their individual ability, realise their purpose and learn the principles that form a solid foundation in education and in life.

Through a carefully planned program Kids on the Bay ensures a stimulating, enriching and enhancing introduction to education, where children will learn through age-appropriate activities in a creative, fun and playful way. We believe that by teaching them to care, be considerate and show respect to one another that they will learn good, positive qualities which will help them grow into strong, confident individuals. By gaining the most out of every day at school we hope that they will leave our care feeling ready and prepared; cognitively, emotionally, socially, physically, creatively and ready to integrate with ease into formal school.

Our Team

As teachers we take a hand. Open a mind and touch a heart.

Information

How we communicate.

Kids on the Bay seeks to work as a ‘team’ with parents to create a consistent and dynamic developmental blend between home and school so that each child can progress without anxiety or pressure. This will attain their greatest potential while developing a love and excitement for learning.

Each child has a message book and reading packet to make communication easy between the teacher and parent.

Each child receives a written report to show the learners progress.

We keep our Website, Facebook page and Brightwheel account updated with pictures, information and important messages.

We send notices out via email.
